HUNTINGTON – A man wanted in a connection with a June Huntington shooting was arrested early Monday morning after an hours-long standoff in Altizer, according to the Huntington Police Department.

Ethan Todd Mcintyre, 23, was jailed at 3:40 a.m. Monday. The HPD charged him with malicious wounding and obstructing. Bond had not been set as of Monday morning.

Mcintyre was arrested about 1 a.m. Monday in connection with a June 24 Guyandotte shooting after a standoff with police lasted four hours at an Altizer neighborhood home in the 4400 block of Altizer Avenue.

The standoff started after the Huntington Police’s Detective and Patrol Bureaus went to the home with information the suspect was inside, but when police approached the home the individuals refused to open the door. Due to safety concerns of the officers, the department’s SWAT team and negotiators were called to the scene.

The SWAT Team officers eventually entered the home and took McIntyre into custody without incident. A handgun was recovered from inside the home.

Charges are pending on three other individuals who were inside the residence.
