WEST ASHLEY SC (WCSC) -

Charleston police say what was initially believed to be a stand-off situation at a West Ashley home Saturday afternoon began with a domestic dispute.

Officers responded to a home in the 1600-block of Pineview Road at approximately 5:02 p.m. where they believed a suspect in a domestic dispute was located, according to Charleston Police Det. Doug Galluccio.

Police evacuated nearby homes as a precaution as they searched for the suspect, he said. 

But police say the home turned out to be empty and residents were then allowed to return to their homes.

Authorities are continuing to investigate the incident.
