Police arrest barricaded man

Inkster police are continuing the investigation into a domestic complaint that escalated into a police standoff with a man barricaded in a home last week.
According to police reports, officers responded to a call at about 8:20 p.m. Aug. 27 about a man armed with a crossbow barricaded in a home near Colgate and Beech Daly. The suspect had barricaded himself following a domestic situation, police said, in which the man had allegedly fired a pellet gun at his girlfriend and then armed himself with the crossbow and refused to leave the home.

Inkster officers called for the Special Response Team and those specially-trained police officers breached the door to the home and took the man into custody, according to a report from the Michigan State Police. Troopers from the Metro South Post Secure City Partnership were also on the scene to assist with perimeter control in the situation.
The suspect remained in the custody of the Inkster Police Department at press times and the Inkster police were continuing to investigate the incident.
