Fugitive barricades himself in home after domestic dispute reported

Standoff

A man believed to be armed and wanted for arrest in another jurisdiction has barricaded himself inside a residence after a domestic dispute, Metro Police officials said.

A woman called police about 12:20 p.m. reporting a domestic dispute at a home in the 6200 block of West Arby Avenue, near Jones Boulevard and Warm Springs Road, said Officer Laura Meltzer, a Metro spokeswoman.

When officers arrived, the suspect barricaded himself inside the home and the woman was able to leave with minor injuries. No one else is believed to be inside the home.

A Metro SWAT unit has been called to negotiate with the man. Surrounding residences have been evacuated for safety, Meltzer said.
