Union Man Faces Charges After Shooting, Standoff

Daniel Prince

Keisler is accused of shooting toward people in a house and camper in Ottaray

A Union man was arrested Thursday after a standoff and faces multiple charges. 23-year-old Davin Luther Keisler faces two counts of discharging firearms into a dwelling, four counts of assault and battery, first degree, and a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted violent felon. According to the arrest warrants, Keisler is accused of shooting towards people in a house and in a camper on 5th Street in Ottaray. The incident took place back on August 6. Keisler also faces a charge of resisting arrest for his actions during the standoff.

Investigator Brad Woods was called to a residence on Neal Shoals Road regarding a barricaded person, identified as Keisler. An anonymous tip had informed the sheriff’s office that Keisler was there. Due to his prior history of running from police, they used a drone for reconnaissance prior to making their presence known. They saw the front door and the second story back door was open prior to their arrival. When deputies arrived on the scene, the doors were slammed and locked. Deputies made several attempts to call Keisler out over their vehicle loudspeakers. A SLED patrol canine was available and nearby, so Captain Scott Coffer was called to get clearance to utilize the SLED patrol dog, which was granted. Keisler was eventually arrested on the various charges and taken to the Union County Detention Center.
