SWAT standoff ends peacefully in DeKalb County

A SWAT standoff ended peacefully in DeKalb County Wednesday morning after a domestic-related shooting. 

DeKalb County police department reports that they were sent to a home on the 2900 block of Knollberry Lane after reports of shots fired.

According to investigators, they believe 41-year-old Tamyra Mackey shot a male victim twice in the upper torso during an argument inside the home.

When police arrived, Mackey was inside the home with four children between the age of 4 and 17. Officials say she refused to come out, which led to a SWAT situation.

After around four hours, Mackey surrendered to negotiators without incident.

Mackey is now in custody at DeKalb County Jail where she is charged with aggravated assault.

Officials say the man was transported to a local hospital and is expected to survive.
