JENNINGS, LA (KPLC) -

A Jennings man has been arrested after barricading himself and a hostage in a residence, according to Chief Deputy Christopher Ivey with Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff's Office.

At approximately 5:50 a.m. on Sunday, JDPSO responded to a hostage and barricaded subject with a firearm on South Cutting Avenue in Jennings.

Ivey says the hostage was released at around 6:10 a.m., but the barricaded subject stayed inside threatening to come out shooting or commit suicide.

The suspect surrendered to deputies at around 9 a.m. after pepper spray was deployed into the residence.

Frederick Kelvin Mixon, 35, was arrested for violation of a restraining order, criminal property damage, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, aggravated assault with a firearm, and remaining on premises after being forbidden.

Ivey says that Mixon has a history of trouble with law enforcement. He was arrested on April 12, 2018 for unauthorized entry of inhabited dwelling, aggravated burglary, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a firearm by a felon, and obstruction of justice. He was also arrested on November 25, 2017 for simple battery of the infirm, battery on a police officer, resisting arrest, aggravated assault with a firearm, possession of a firearm by a felon, and violation of a protective order.

Mixon is being held in the parish jail without bond.

Surrounding residences were cleared during the situation, says Ivey.

    Through the rest of today expect skies to remain partly cloudy.  Unfortunately, this does not help our temperatures much as highs will get into the 90s and feels-like temperatures will be in the triple digits.  We do have a slight breeze along and south of the I-10 corridor between 5-10 mph helping to keep air flowing.  Tonight, temperatures will still be warm not dropping out of the mid 70s across southwest Louisiana.
