Early this morning, a man who had barricaded himself in a Lower Valley apartment complex turned himself into Police. This came after over six hours of communicating with negotiators and officers.
Just after 7 o'clock last night, Police with rifles surrounded a unit of the M.L.K. Apartments on the 9100 block of Hazelnut.
The standoff started yesterday afternoon when someone called Police about a domestic dispute. We're told the man may have assaulted his wife or girlfriend and then barricaded himself in the apartment with her and some children.
Authorities say the man has been arrested on two outstanding warrants, one for family violence and another for violating a protective order.
