This evening several officers were on scene of a man that reportedly barricaded himself in a residence, in Loves Park.
The man was reported to have went after a neighbor and was acting disorderly, screaming something about someone taking his children away. Sounds like the man had recently lost his kids and wife and was taking his anger out on the neighbors.
He was threatening to shoot his neighbors.
The man then reportedly barricaded himself inside a home at 5142 Flagstone, in Forest Hills Village.
After negotiations with officers, approx. 6:30 pm the officers were able to take the suspect into custody. It appears the police used a non lethal method and took him into custody.
Metro Ambulance was on scene and quickly treated the suspect on scene and transported the man.
The mans name has yet to be released.
