Police, alleged standoff lasts 10 hours after gun fired
NEW HAVEN, Indiana (WANE) — Officers with the Allen County Sheriff’s Department successfully ‘negotiated’ a suspect from his vehicle after firing a bullet from a gun and refusing lawful orders after 10 hours.
The department responded to a “suspicious occupied vehicle” at the intersection of Gar Creek Road and N. Roussey Road at 3:38 a.m. Sunday. According to a press release, officers arrived and located the vehicle with a suspect inside. After the male suspect was identified, it was determined he had an active warrant.
When asked to exit the vehicle, the suspect refused, telling officers he had a gun. While ignoring orders from officers, he fired a shot from his driver’s side window. Then the Allen County SWAT Team and Crisis Negotiation Team were alerted.
The release says the standoff lasted 10 hours with the suspect locked in his vehicle. Officers were able to get the suspect out of his car and surrender peacefully this afternoon. He was taken to Allen County Lockup and is currently being held on a Michigan probationary order.
The suspect is charged with criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
