There was an armed standoff with police in Blair County that lasted nearly nine hours but ended peacefully this morning.  Police say a call was made about a domestic dispute after Mark Wendt of Newry fired a gun at his estranged wife's house.  His brother in law and another woman was also inside the home.  Township Police, State Police and the Sert Team were called in to assist at the home on Helen Street just after one last night.  It was not until about ten thirty this morning when Wendt surrendered himself to law enforcement.  Luckily no one was hurt.  Wendt is facing burglary and aggravated assault charges.  He was arraigned on two hundred thousand dollars straight cash bail.
