LIMA — Mark Seffernick, the Lima man taken into custody by Lima police following a lengthy standoff Sunday, has been charged with suspicion of felonious assault and suspicion of improperly discharging a firearm into a habitation. He is currently being held in the Allen County jail awaiting a court date.
Seffernick, 59, surrendered to police after 4 p.m. Sunday after barricading himself in his residence at 1008 E. Albert St. shortly after midnight. Lima police officers were called to the residence after receiving a call about a man threatening another man with a gun. As officers approached the scene, Seffernick retreated into the house and barricaded the front door.
Over the next several hours three shots were fired from the residence at police. None of those shots led to any injuries.
