A suspect is in custody after a standoff in Madison County this morning.
It happened at the Skyline Restoration Body Shop on Route 29 at about 7:30 a.m. where shots were fired.
Authorities say the suspect went into the body shop and the employees there fled with the suspect staying there until he was arrested at around 10 a.m.
The situation led to the closing of Route 29 in both directions. A detour was set up and traffic was backed up for several miles in all directions on 29 and side roads. The highway has since reopened.
There was a temporary lockdown at Madison County High School, but the school has been reopened.
