Police say they responded to the residence because of an aggravated physical assault that happened at the home earlier that day. When officers arrived at the house, they saw a man, later identified as Andrew Huff, standing by his truck.

He ran into the home as officers approached and watched officers out the front window. The officer responding waved to Huff while another approached the front door. That’s when Huff disappeared from view.
