JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — A man barricaded himself inside of a home Monday night while holding his mother hostage, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s office said.

According to officials, the 37-year-old son, whose identity has not been released, trapped his 69-year-old mother in the home in the 12000 block of South Highway 285 near Conifer about 6:45 p.m.

The sheriff’s office said the man’s 76-year-old father was able to escape and place the emergency call.

About 11:30 p.m., the sheriff’s office said the disabled woman was out of the home and safe.

A reverse emergency notification alert told residents within a quarter-mile of the standoff to shelter in place.

The shelter-in-place order was lifted about 9:45 a.m. Though the man was still barricaded in the home, the sheriff’s office said there was no danger to the public.
