GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (Feb. 12, 2014)–A suspect is in custody Wednesday night after a standoff in northwest Grand Rapids

Police set up a perimeter in the area of 4th and Stocking for several hours, but realized the suspect had fled the scene.  He was later located in the area of Brown Street and Division.

Roads were closed off in the 800 block of 4th Street after a man in his 30s apparently barricaded himself inside a home with a gun after a domestic dispute with his girlfriend, according to officials at the scene.

No injuries were reported, and the man was eventually taken into custody without incident.  The man allegedly threatened to harm police who approached the house, but no gun was discovered in his possession after his arrest in the other area of Grand Rapids.

The man’s identity has not been released.
