UPDATED: 10-Hour Barricade Ends Peacefully

A 10-hour barricade on Ladybank Lane ended today following the surrender of Anthony Moaf, 21.

At around 4 a.m. today, police arrived on the scene after receiving a report that an armed man was threatening to kill family members in the 13200 block of Ladybank Lane.

Moaf is being taken for a medical evaluation. He also faces charges for reckless handling of a firearm, police said.

Earlier in the day, the Fairfax County Police Department asked people to stay away from Ladybank Lane in Herndon due to ongoing safety concerns.

All family members are safe, but the man threatened to shoot responding officers. At around 6 a.m., police heard at least one gunshot. “It was not directed at anyone or at police,” according to the police department.

Police are attempting to resolve the situation peacefully and urge residents to avoid the area. They have made contact with the man over the phone and are continuing negotiations.
