An early morning armed stand-off in Henning ended without injury Sunday morning, Oct. 28.

Officers from nearly every department in the area were engaged in the seven-hour episode, which started with a report to the Sheriff's Department dispatcher at 3:15 a.m. and ended at 10:15 a.m.

Arrested for domestic assault was Michael Adam Rousu, 29. According to Sheriff's Department reports, Rousu was allegedly holding his mother and grandmother hostage.

Several shots were allegedly fired into the ceiling of the residence, but nobody was hit. After a series of negotiations between law enforcement officers and the suspect, Rousu surrendered at about 10:30 a.m. Sunday morning.

Officer Stromme with the Perham Police Department assisted at the scene with traffic control at a blocked off intersection. He was stationed on scene for three hours, until relieved by a deputy.
