Police Standoff Ends Peacefully In Frankfort

A standoff between a kidnapper and police ended peacefully the morning of Dec. 26 in Frankfort.

Louisville Police say they were called out to an area home after a report of shots fired.

Police say 26-year-old Kenneth McCormick took off from the home with a woman and his seven-year-old son.

The woman was dumped off in Jeffersonville and she told police McCormick was on his way to his brother's house in Frankfort.

Frankfort police responded to McCormick's brother's house where they say they found McCormick's pick-up truck.

Police called in the swat team and K-9 Units because there were reports he was armed.

After about a half hour of negotiations McCormick gave himself up.

No one was hurt.

McCormick is charged with burglary, assault, kidnapping and intimidating a witness.
