The Andalusia man involved in Tuesday’s three hour standoff with law enforcement is now charged with four counts of attempted murder,  one count of making a terroristic threat and one count of domestic violence.

John Paul Williams, 45, is currently being held in the Covington County Jail on a $1.125 million bond.

Law enforcement had to negotiate with Williams, who was threatening to kill himself. At various points during the negotiations, Williams fired shots at police. The county’s Incident Response Team implemented tactical measures to eventually get Williams out of the home.
