STEPHENS COUNTY, OK (KSWO) - A three-hour long manhunt Thursday in Stephens County ended with one man's arrest.

Around 4 p.m. deputies were called to a rural home 17 miles east of Marlow near the town of Foster. There, a man told investigators his stepson, later identified as 35-year-old Barry Claud Kelly had barricaded himself in a room after pointing a high-powered rifle at family members. He threatened to shoot through the door if anyone came near it.

When deputies arrived, Kelly was outside the house, but his mother was still inside, medically unable to get out on her own. Deputies soon determined Kelly had slipped out before their arrival and was hiding nearby in a heavily wooded area. The OHP tactical team and chopper were called in.

While in hiding, Stephens County Sheriff Wayne McKinney says Kelly made several calls to a friend stating he was going to shoot and kill as many officers as he could. With the help of both agencies, Kelly was found hiding in thick brush and was arrested. Investigators believe he suffers from mental illness.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
