Standoff Ends After Machete Attack in Florence

FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) – A Florence man accused of attacking his three children and brother with a machete held police at bay for more than three hours before officers arrested him to end the standoff.

Authorities say Kyle Seeley seriously injured the four at a home Wednesday morning and then barricaded himself inside. Police say the victims were taken to hospitals for treatment of cuts but none of the injuries appeared life-threatening. Tactical officers from the Florence Police Department tried to convince the man to surrender, and he finally was arrested while attempting to run away when officers used tear gas.
