On Saturday June 28,2014 at approximately 4:40 pm, the FWPD responded to a house located at 1631 Hinton Drive in reference to a 911 hang up call. As 911 dispatchers were on the telephone with someone inside the residence, dispatch believed that there was some type of disturbance coming from this address. As officers arrived on the scene, they spoke with an individual outside the residence who told police that a male who was identified as Jeremy C Elder Sr was inside the residence and was wanted in reference to a previous domestic battery investigation. Officers on the scene made several attempts to make contact with Elder which failed. Officers with the Fort Wayne Police Departments Emergency Services Team and Crisis Response Team were dispatched to the scene.
Officers with the Crisis Response Team spoke with Elders on the telephone for several hours in an attempt to have him exit the residence and surrender to police. At approximately 10:30 PM, Elders came out of the residence as he did not comply with officers orders as less leathal ammunition was used to take Elders into custody. Elders was transported from the scene to the Allen County jail and charged with felony domestic battery.
This incident remains under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department and the Allen County Prosecutors Office.
