Worth County  --  A self-inflicted gunshot wound ends a standoff with deputies in Worth County.

James "Frankie" Garren was transported to Tift Regional Hospital after shooting himself in the stomach with a .22 caliber pistol.

The standoff started when Tift county deputies were called to a home in Ty Ty for a domestic dispute.    That's when Garren fired two shots at the deputy and fled to a trailer on Sledge road in Worth County. 

"He was holed up in the house and his wife was in there with him, and that was probably 7 o'clock," said Worth County Sheriff Freddie Tompkins. "He stayed in the house probably an hour to an hour and a half, and he finally shot himself in the stomach, and we went in there, and I looked at him, and they took him to the Tift county hospital. "

Police say Garren's injuries are not life threatening.  Police are still trying to determine if Garren's wife was a hostage during this situation.
