ROANOKE COUNTY, VA -

New details from a search warrant executed in Roanoke County, following the standoff this past Monday.

Court records show police say Greg Elliot called 911 to tell police that a woman was being held against her will by her husband, Bill Long Jr.

Elliot told officer that at 10:25 a.m., Long pointed one pistol at his head, and a second at his groin.  Long then searched Elliot.

Elliot says Long let him leave the house in the 200 block of Orlando Avenue at 12:25 p.m., after agreeing to go pick-up food and bring it back to the house.  Elliot says he did this, then drove off to call police.

Court records claim Long let his wife go once Roanoke County Police arrived to the home.

Elliot told investigators that he had known Long for years, and gave officers detailed information about multiple guns and ammunition that Long owned.

The court records also claim hostage negotiators talked to Long Jr., and that Long admitted he had guns in his possession, as well as the ability to blow the entire block with explosives.
