Suicidal Barricaded man

On 11/15/09, at approximately 6:30 p.m., officers responded to 143rd and Stoneway Av N to a call of a suspect who was suicidal, and had access to several firearms. 

Officers responded and contained the block around the suspects home, and called for Hostage Negotiators (HNT) and SWAT.   SWAT arrived and took the inner perimeter around the suspects house, and HNT was able to establish contact with the suspect via cell phone.  The suspect agreed to exit the house and was taken into custody by SWAT.  A loaded .45 caliber handgun was removed from the home and put into evidence for safekeeping. 

The suspect was taken to HMC for a mental health evaluation.
