LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A standoff in Jeffersontown that lasted several hours ended peacefully after the suspect surrendered Sunday evening. 

Decedric Binford was charged with second-degree assault-domestic violence. He was on home incarceration for attempted murder of a police officer after he allegedly opened fire on an LMPD officer in May 2020. Former LMPD Police Chief Steve Conrad said an officer was grazed in the shoulder by a bullet. 

According to Jeffersontown Police, officers responded to a domestic violence call at Palmetto Circle near Taylorsville Road after Binford allegedly assaulted a victim with a knife at 3:43 p.m.

Binford barricaded himself in the apartment near Jeffersontown High School after the victim and a child fled to safety, police say. 

He surrendered to police, which included Louisville Metro SWAT and a hostage negotiation team, around 6 p.m.
