A standoff that lasted more than seven hours at a residence in Oakwood overnight ended peacefully with the arrest of the suspect, according to a press release from the Hall County Sheriff's Department. 

On Sept. 18, Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputies went to a home on Railroad St. to serve warrants for battery and third degree cruelty to children. The suspect named in the warrants, Marvin Nathaniel Hogan, 40, refused to exit the house and barricaded himself in the basement. Hogan was armed with a handgun and told deputies he would kill himself if they entered the house. The suspect told deputies he had other weapons in the residence.
