RICHMOND, Ky. (FOX 56) — Richmond Police said they responded to a domestic dispute Saturday night that led to an hours-long standoff which resulted in several homes damaged by fire at the Richmond Manor Apartments on North Third Street.

Richmond Police Assistant Chief William O’Donnell said officers first received a call from the victim who stated her ex-boyfriend was attempting to break into her home.

“During that time officers were responding to the call, she indicated that he was armed with something. As we responded the victim and three children were able to exit the residence,” O’Donnell said. “He barricaded himself inside the apartment and began firing at officers.”

Multiple agencies responded as officers evacuated neighboring apartments.

O’Donnell said crisis negotiators were called in during the response and negotiated with 30-year-old Logan Browning for nearly four hours.

“Negotiators attempted to deescalate Mr. Browning and plead for his surrender. Unfortunately, Mr. Browning refused to do that and didn’t comply with any of our directives and he eventually set fire to the top of the apartment building,” O’Donnell said.

The fire eventually forced Browning to leave out of the back of the building where police said the stand-off briefly continued with Browning, who was still armed, before it deescalated to the point he could be taken into custody.

Browning was taken to a hospital after police said he injured himself entering the home. He will immediately be taken to Madison County Detention Center upon release.

Police said Browning is facing several charges related to the incident:

  • Burglary 1st degree
  • Robbery 1st degree
  • Arson 1st degree
  • Possession of a handgun by a convicted felon
  • Assault 2nd degree – domestic violence
  • Criminal mischief 1st degree (8 counts)
  • Wanton endangerment 1st degree-police officer (9 counts)
  • Wanton endangerment 1st degree (5 counts)
