DINWIDDIE COUNTY, Va. – A suspect is in custody following a standoff in Dinwiddie County Sunday evening.

Sheriff D.T. Adams said deputies were called to a home in the 13000 block of Browns Road for a domestic situation following a report of a man with a gun and shots fired around 5:20 p.m.

When law enforcement arrived, Adams said the suspect subject had barricaded himself inside the residence and a standoff  ensued.

Kelley was charged with two counts of brandishing firearm and one count of reckless handling firearm.

Kelley is being held without bond at the Meherrin Regional Jail.
