Raleigh, N.C. — A Sunday morning standoff between a Raleigh man and police ended peacefully after the man refused to exit his home for several hours.
Raleigh police officers went to a home at 713 Friar Tuck Road just before 7:30 a.m. to serve Laquan McCoy Cannady, 23, with arrest warrants for two counts of failure to appear in court and one count of possession of a stolen motor vehicle.
Authorities said Cannady declined to exit his home additional officers responded to the residence while several nearby homes were voluntarily evacuated as a precaution.
Cannady surrendered without incident at about noon and was charged with resisting, delaying or obstructing officers and child abuse.

Cannady was being held at the Wake County Detention Center.
