MARION COUNTY, Fla. (WCJB) - We have new details on a story we first brought you on Thursday. We now know the name of man Marion county sheriff’s deputies were in a three-hour stand-off with.

Deputies say, Marcus Myers, 46, has been charged with four counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer as well as the corruption of an officer by threat.

Shots were fired in a standoff between Myers and Marion County deputies Thursday morning.

A 911 caller reported a man was threatening a family and firing a gun at a home near the Ocala International Airport on SW 17th Place. When deputies arrived, Myers was allegedly outside and they say he fired his gun into the air before going back inside the house.

After several hours of negotiations, he finally surrendered and was charged with aggravated assault.

Myers is being held on a $40,000.
