EL PASO COUNTY – A suspect is in custody following a standoff at a home in the Stratmoor Valley neighborhood Sunday afternoon.

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office arrested David Miller hours after a bail bondsman came to a home in the 1100 block of Maxwell St. around 3:15 pm. Sunday.

Deputies said that’s when Miller refused to come out and took another person inside the home hostage. That prompted deputies to issue a shelter-in-place alert to neighbors.

Miller was arrested on an outstanding felony domestic violence warrant and will likely face additional charges.
