SHELBY COUNTY, Tenn. — A Cordova man appeared in court Monday after barricading himself inside his home Sunday for nearly 13 hours.
Deputies were called to a home in the 1500 block of Stable Run just before midnight Saturday about a domestic dispute.
According to an affidavit, a woman told police her husband, Marcus Boyd, 49, has locked her out of the home.
She said she had left two days earlier due to marital problems.
Deputies made contact with Boyd, who let his wife and their children back into the home.
Boyd then got a shotgun and began pointing it at his wife and kids, demanding they leave, the affidavit said.
A SWAT team was called, and a robot and drone were used.
Boyd’s wife and kids left after he fired a shot at the ceiling, records show.
Neighbor Sherrie Johnson told us her normally quiet street was filled with police.
“The police told everybody to get back in the house. So we knew something was going on, we just didn’t know what”, Johnson said.
Boyd surrendered to law enforcement about 1 p.m. Sunday. Deputies could be seen removing several items, including guns, from the home.
Boyd is charged with three counts of aggravated assault and two counts of reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, according to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.
FOX13 confirmed he once worked for the Shelby County Department of Corrections.
He is scheduled back in court June 30.
