On Saturday December 5, 2015 at approximately 4:39 PM, officers with the Fort Wayne Police Department responded to a residence located in the 3900 block of North Clinton Street in reference to a 911 hang up call. As officers arrived on the scene, they spoke with a male and female outside of the residence. As officers were collecting information regarding the incident, the male went back inside the residence and refused to come out.

From the information officers received while speaking with the female, it was believed that the male and female were involved in a domestic investigation. Officers made several attempts to speak to the male with a loud speaker asking the male to come outside and speak with officers. The male refused to come out and speak with officers.

At that time officers with the Fort Wayne Police Department Emergency Services Team and Crisis Response Team were dispatched to the scene. Officers with the Crisis Response Team made contact with the male by telephone asking him to come outside and surrender. After several hours of speaking with the male, he came out and surrendered to officers. The male was transported from the scene to police headquarters to be interviewed by investigators. It was not clear at this time what charges the male may be facing.

This incident remains under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department and the Allen County Prosecutors Office.
