LONGS, SC (WMBF) – The Horry County Police Department resolved a 17-hour standoff with a man with four warrants who barricaded himself in a house in Longs Tuesday by using a 'chemical agent,' according to a news release and police report with new details about the ordeal. Police say no charges will be filed at this time.

Officers responded to a call about a suicidal man on Palmetto Green Drive, the release states. The man had a gun and refused to surrender despite extensive negotiation efforts. The police report states that the man has four warrants out of the Horry County Police Department.
