Marion County Deputies are looking for a dangerous man who escaped a North Salem home during a standoff Tuesday. 20 year old Sir Diamond Damien Gipson is on the run after the standoff that lasted several hours. Police were called to the house on Lancaster Drive NE near Hayesville Road because Gipson and his girlfriend had gotten into a fight. She and her child were able to get out of the house safely but Gipson refused. Deputies tried calling him, then deploying tear gas, then a robot, but they determined he wasn't in the house.
Gipson is from Salem so deputies are checking in with his friends and family. He is considered dangerous and probably has a weapon. Deputies say if you see him, call 911.
