The police Conflict Negotiation Team and Special Operations Section were sent to the scene, as officers made neighbors aware of the situation and asked them to stay in their homes. Negotiators attempted for several hours to establish verbal and phone communication with the uncooperative subject, who taunted officers several times, saying that he wanted to be injured, police said. The subject exited the home once and tactical officers tried several options to end the situation, before the man retreated into the home. At 10:18 p.m., the suspect was taken into custody outside the home. He was transported to an area hospital, where he remains under treatment, police said.
