Posted: Updated:

A barricaded gunman was arrested in Roscommon County.

The Roscommon County Sheriff's Department tells us a domestic dispute unfolded between a man and a woman.

They say they Dilles Walker was holding a woman against her will inside a home in Nester Township. It started around 3:00 p.m on Sunday.

We're told at some point the woman tried to call 911 but Walker shot the phone. He also made threats to kill anyone who came near the home and himself.

The woman was able to get out of the house safely.

After hours of intense negotiation over the phone and a loud speaker, Walker surrendered to police around 10:30 p.m.

No one was hurt.

Walker is in the Roscommon County Jail on numerous charges.
