RE: OP 100/Police Standoff
This afternoon just before 2pm, Officers were called to the area of 17th and Newton in regard to a disturbance with a weapon and sounds of shots.
Dispatch received several calls in regard. The suspect, an adult female, was observed walking down the street with a rifle. The suspect then began firing the rifle at several victims who were doing some work outside in the area.
The suspect then walked into a residence she had no association to with the rifle and fired several shots inside the residence where there were several victims inside with their dog. The victims did not know the suspect. The suspect shot the dog and then left that residence on foot. She then walked into another residence in the 1800 block of Ewing. She was believed to be associated to that residence. Officers contacted an adult male at that residence who cooperated and exited the house. The male advised officers there was no one else inside the residence with the suspect.
Officers called an OP 100/Police Standoff to bring additional tactical resources and our negotiators to the scene.
Just after 4pm, the suspect exited the residence and was taken into custody without incident.
There are believed to be no injuries to any of the victims. However, the dog the suspect shot died.
The investigation into the aggravated assaults continues.
