Standoff Police car

Officers responded to the University Oakwood Apartments when residents called 911 saying they heard shots fired.

An armed suspect fired at one of the officers. He was not injured. The officers chased the suspect on foot, but the suspect disappeared into an apartment.

Police negotiated for two and half hours and were able to convince the suspect to surrender. Two other males, two females and a 3-year-old boy also came out of the apartment.

They were not held against their will, but chose to stay in the apartment until the suspect surrendered. The investigation is ongoing and charges are pending.
