DENVER (KDVR) — A suspect was taken into custody early Monday morning after a shelter-in-place was issued Sunday night for several blocks in Denver’s Highland neighborhood.
According to the Denver Police Department, the suspect was taken into custody between 2 and 2:30 a.m.
Police said the suspect fired shots at Denver Police SWAT several times, however, no officers were injured.
It happened in the area of 35th and Navajo Street. Police said the shelter-in-place was issued to ensure safety in the area because police were working on negotiating with a barricaded man.
The situation started with a call for a person in crisis, but police said it turned out that the person involved had multiple warrants, and he barricaded himself in the area.
DPD will provide more information on the situation at a later time.
