Barricaded Gunman Situation Ends Without Incident In Detroit

DETROIT (WWJ) – Police diffuse a dangerous barricaded gunman situation on Detroit’s east side.

The incident happened early Sunday morning when members of the Swat team and Hostage negotiators arrived a home near Warren and Outer Drive.

Authorities say the suspect threatened his girlfriend with a gun — before barricading himself inside.

The suspect, a man in his 50’s, eventually let the girlfriend go — and SWAT Team members coaxed the gunman out safely with the help of the suspect’s friends.

No one was injured. The gunman is currently in custody.
