A perimeter was established around the building and officers made contact with the suspect over the phone.

After an hour and a half of negotiations the suspect came out of his apartment and was taken into custody without incident.

Police did recover a loaded .38 caliber revolver during the search of his residence.

The 44 year old suspect was arrested for resisting and obstructing, felony firearm, possession of an unregistered firearm, and an unrelated bench warrant.
