RCSO arrests man after armed standoff in Jamestown

Russell County Sheriff Derek Polston told WJRS News a man was arrested following an hours-long standoff with law enforcement in Jamestown Tuesday evening.

Polston said deputies responded following a call that came in at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. The call was for a domestic situation in which there were reports that someone was shot at inside a residence.

When law enforcement arrived, the suspect, identified as Darian Carroll, age 27 of Jamestown, along with other family members were still inside the residence. Law enforcement was able to gain entrance into the residence and get the other family members to safety.

After a few hours of negotiations, law enforcement was able to take Carroll into custody. He was transported to Russell County Hospital for treatment, and Polston said he will be undergoing further medical examination.

Carroll is facing charges of wanton endangerment first degree and unlawful imprisonment first degree. He was lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center just after 1 a.m. Wednesday.

The incident remains under investigation by the Russell County Sheriff’s Office and Kentucky State Police. Deputy Kenny Perkins is the investigating deputy.

Other agencies assisting RCSO on scene were Jamestown Police Department, Russell Springs Police Department, Russell County EMS, and Kentucky State Police.
