The man involved in a standoff with law enforcement officials in Dublin in November had his court case continued in Bladen County Superior Court.

McKenzie Brisson is scheduled to appear in Bladen County Superior Court on October 1.

Brisson was involved in an armed standoff with law enforcement which lasted 6 hours in November 2017. During the standoff, Brisson fired rounds of ammunition in and around a home on Paul Brisson Road in Dublin. When the shots eventually stopped, law enforcement sent a robot into the house to locate Brisson. The robot was initially unable to locate Brisson inside the house, but he was eventually located inside a pick up truck in the garage of the home. Brisson was taken into custody without incident. No was injured during the standoff.
