MARSHALL COUNTY, Okla. -- A man wanted for firing on Tishomingo police and Johnston County Sheriff's Office deputies early Saturday morning was arrested late Saturday night after a standoff in Marshall County.

Johnston County said the manhunt began when a suspect identified as Scotty Lafay Russell, 44, shot at officers during a high-speed pursuit in Tishomingo.  The suspect abandoned his vehicle in Ravia, west of Tishomingo, and fled on foot. 

Hours later, a tip led law enforcement officials to the Cumberland Cove area in Marshall County, about 10 miles away, where Russell was barricaded in a residence.

"After a lengthy standoff, we were able to bring this dangerous situation to resolution," The Johnston County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post shortly after midnight Saturday.

Russell was being held at the Johnston County jail facing attempted murder charges. Bond was set at $500,000.

No injuries were reported.
