Keywords

A Shelby County man is in jail and charged with confinement and criminal recklessness after locking himself in his home
on Tuesday afternoon, refusing to release his teenage son, and threatening to kill himself and police. According to authorities,
39-year-old Jason Brammer barricaded himself and his 13-year-old son in his Shelby County home after a domestic dispute with
his estranged wife. Because Brammer was armed, a SWAT team was called to the scene. After several hours and allegedly threatening
police, Brammer surrendered. His son was not injured.
