ARGYLE — A portion of Main Street was closed Friday as a sheriff’s negotiator attempted to make contact with an armed suspect who barricaded himself inside a residence following a domestic dispute.

Raymond K. Bates III, 48, is facing multiple charges after police said he fired at least two shots in the direction of a female victim sometime around 4:25 p.m. after she tried to leave following a dispute.

Bates, who knew the victim, retreated back inside the residence before police arrived, according to a news release from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

The victim was not injured, according to police.
