MENDENHALL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A standoff situation in Mendenhall ended peacefully on Monday night.

At around 5:30 pm, deputies went to a home on Emmitt Brown Road to serve a warrant for the arrest of 23-year-old Joseph McGovern. He was wanted on a felony aggravated assault charge against a deputy last week.

He fled to a relative's house after the incident.

The suspect refused to cooperate with law enforcement. Deputies then called Mississippi Highway Patrol and the SWAT team responded, along with MBI and MBN.

Just before 11 pm, McGovern surrendered to authorities.

We will update the story when we know more.
