UPDATE (11:38 a.m.): The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office has released more information about a standoff that led to one man being killed.

Sheriff Chip Simmons said bondsmen went to a home on Helton Road looking for Ronny Clark, 53. The bondsmen arrived and believed he had a gun. At around 4:45 p.m. deputies arrived and had a 3-hour-long conversation with Clark.

Deputies then called for SWAT and created a perimeter around the area. Law enforcement tried for two more hours to get Clark to come out of the home.

During the standoff, Clark had a woman held hostage inside a tent on the property. Clark used his phone twice to contact acquaintances. During this time, he told the acquaintances that he had a gun and was going to shoot deputies.

Deputies believed Clark would try to get into his vehicle, so they used tactical vehicles to surround the car. Clark walked towards his vehicle with a knife at the hostage’s throat. He was eventually shot and killed. The woman was injured and is currently being treated at a hospital.

Clark was wanted in Escambia County and in Alabama. He had 58 felony convictions and has been incarcerated three times. Clark was designated as a violent felony offender of special concern.
