DELHI TOWNSHIP (FOX19) - A standoff in Delhi Township ended peacefully Monday after a man barricaded himself in a home on Wood Valley Lane with his daughter and mother-in-law.

On Monday afternoon, the Delhi Township Police were called to the 600 block of Wood Valley Lane for a report of an unknown domestic situation. When police arrived they were informed that a 34 year-old man had killed a family dog.

Two female family members were talked into leaving the residence.

The male was still inside the hose with a loaded pistol and was threatening to harm himself. One of the female family members was able to talk the man  into giving up the firearm. The female family member left the residence with the gun and turned it over to police.

After numerous attempts to reach the male subject on the phone, the Hamilton County SWAT team was called to the scene for help. After two and a half hours, the man peacefully surrendered.

An investigation revealed that the man had beat the family dog to death. The man, who was identified as 34-year-old Lowell McDonald, was arrested and charged with Inducing Panic and Cruelty to Animals.

He is currently being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center. He waived his appearance in Hamilton County court and is being held on no bond for a clinic evaluation.
