Brothers Charged In Standoff

May 9, 2013

Two men are in custody after a standoff in a Mifflin Township home Wednesday that forced the lock-downs of seven Columbus schools.

Franklin County Sheriff's deputies say it started when two brothers attempted a home invasion style robbery in the 26 hundred block of Perdue Avenue, but escalated when one barricaded himself in the house with a gun. Deantony Richardson and William Richardson are in custody.
