Police Spokesperson Lt. Goodman said that “this morning at about 5:38 a.m. officers responded to an apartment complex at the 1500 block of N. Fair Oaks Ave. in reference to an adult female reportedly armed with a handgun and threatening suicide.”
“Upon arrival we contained the location, which included the apartment complex and blocking traffic on Fair Oaks between Penn and Howard Streets,” Goodman said.
“We assisted with evacuating residents from the apartment complex, and they are in a safe location.”
Goodman said the police crisis negotiation team is presently on scene attempting to establish contact with the woman so that it may be brought to a positive resolution.
She is believed to be inside the apartment alone, Goodman said.
