JONESBORO, AR - The Jonesboro Police Department's tactical unit was called out to a stand-off last night at an apartment at the corner of Melrose and Cedar Heights Drives in north Jonesboro.

The suspect, Joe Palmore, is wanted on felony warrants out of Poinsett County for a previous terroristic act, in which Palmore allegedly fired a gun at a house in Marked Tree.

He was spotted in Jonesboro last night and ran to the Breckinridge Apartment complex.  Following a short standoff, police used a flash grenade before entering the apartment, where they found a weapon, but no suspect.

Police say Palmore was previously involved in an aggravated assault with a weapon in the same area.  The JPD is still looking for Palmore this morning.
