Yates barricaded himself at his residence and refused to speak with deputies. A perimeter was established and deputies certified in Crisis Intervention Team training responded to the scene and attempted to communicate with Yates for a period of time prior to the Emergency Services Team entering the residence.

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office thanks the Maryland State Police for their assistance during this incident.
