NEWBURGH, N.Y. -- The man who barricaded himself in a Newburgh home when police tried to arrested him on an attempted murder charge is now in custody.

Gosford Lembhard retreated inside the Liberty Street home with several relatives, including a 10-year-old girl.

Lembhard is now in custody of US Marshal's Office and no one was hurt during the 10 hour ordeal.
