Lowndes County - A Lowndes County man barricaded himself in his home Wednesday and fired several shots at investigators.

Deputies were called to the home off Highway 41 near Hahira around 10:00 Wednesday morning. A family member told them Miller Grow was threatening to kill himself. Grow barricaded himself in the house and fired several shots that came near investigators.

Sheriff Ashley Paulk is a personal friend of the family and helped convince Grow to give up the gun. He surrendered after about three hours. "We tried to negotiate with him, I've known him since he was a small child and have a repor with him, and he finally did come out of the house," said Paulk.

Paulk says it appears Grow was under the influence of alcohol.

He was taken to South Georgia Medical Center for observation. No charges have been filed.
