One in custody after standoff with gunman and house fire in Princeton, Illinois

Princeton Police say a male has been charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon after a nine hour standoff with police. The gunman barricaded himself in his own home and refused to come out for several hours. A fire broke out in the residence but it is unclear how the fire began and whether is was accidental or intentional. KWQC's Sarah Jones was on the scene and spoke with a witness who allowed snipers to set up in her home as Friday's events unfolded.
