When a four-hour standoff in Black River Falls finally came to a safe conclusion, a man who had refused to leave his friend’s apartment stepped outside and surrendered. The long afternoon started with an emergency call from a victim of domestic abuse. She described her attacker, told authorities he was headed to Black River Falls and he did have a weapon. Jackson County deputies tried to stop him, but he managed to make it inside the apartment and wouldn’t come out. Ten-to-15 people living in the surrounding neighborhood were evacuated. After he gave up, the man was booked into the county jail. His name hasn’t been released.
