UPDATE: Suspect in custody after SWAT response in South Delridge


ORIGINAL REPORT, 1:40 PM: Thanks for the tip about a sizable police response near 21st SW and SW Cambridge [map] in South Delridge. Police at the scene tell us that they went there to arrest a domestic-violence suspect who has not yet come out of his own accord. We’ll be checking back again later.

3:16 PM: The SWAT team is there now.


Nearby streets are blocked off, too, until this is resolved, so avoid the area.

4:12 PM: Per neighbors and scanner, the suspect is in custody. No injuries reported.

(Not snow – photo taken during downpour)

4:28 PM: Police will be in the area a while, as they’re searching the suspect’s house – the original big pre-SWAT turnout was because they suspected he was armed.

    Police have that street blocked off partially. Just heard a gun shot.

      The SWAT team is there now and our crew just went back over. That was a “flashbang” – a noise device used in these types of operations.

    Thanks for covering this, WSB! Getting home from work and seeing the swat team on my street was a bit of a surprise. This was the first place I looked to find out what was going on in the neighborhood. We appreciate your quick response and coverage!

      Biggest thanks goes to whomever the person was who texted us about the “big police response” initially. We had just walked in from a midday meeting and heard some scanner traffic that seemed like an intense effort to get somebody to give up and come out, somewhere, but no address was mentioned. Meantime, I hope to have some more info on the suspect tomorrow … I think I’ve found him on the roster but can’t be 100 percent sure till verifying with police, as we had only heard his first name mentioned during the operation – TR

        Hey that was me! Happy to do it. It was definitely intense for a few hours. I’m glad no one was shot.

    I have heard multiple times from multiple people that this particular house is  a magnet for drug sales and  drug use. We do not need these types of situations in our neighborhood!! It only attracts the kind of folks that cause trouble and make the area feel unsafe!

Sorry, comment time is over.
