BATON ROUGE (WVLA) -
A shooting Tuesday night turned into a three hour long standoff.
Now - 44 year old Thomas Fayard is behind bars and charged with 2nd degree murder.
It happened around 9:30 last night on the 13000 block of Goodwood. That's where BRPD says they found a 32 year old man shot several times. He was taken to the hospital where he died.
Police say they learned Fayard was headed back to his house not too far from the scene. Officers were able to get his wife out - but police say Fayard wouldn't come out.
Special Response Team and Hostage Negotiators were called to the scene and just after midnight the suspect finally agreed to surrender. He was taken into custody without further incident.
