Officers responded to reports of a man, who they discovered barricaded inside a residence in the 11000 block of Bollinger Park Court, shooting a gun in his backyard at around noon, according to Eyewitness News.

Police say the suspect suffers from mental-health issues and uses PCP.

“Our hostage negotiators talked to him for a great deal of time,” Captain Larry Baimbridge said in an interview following the standoff. “Ultimately, he came outside and followed all the commands.”

Officers then took the suspect into custody.
