A domestic dispute led to a hostage situation in Jones County Thursday night. 

A man got into an altercation with his ex-girlfriend on Herrington Street in Ellisville when police say the man began firing multiple shots from the home.

Police tried to communicate with the man through a P.A. system and through central dispatch on the telephone. 

According to police, they engaged the suspect in a standoff for more than an hour before the police chief was able to convince the man to surrender. 

This is a developing story. We will provide more details as information becomes available.
