The Kalamazoo Metro SWAT Team and Hostage Negotiators surrounded a home in the 4200 block of Oakland Drive, early Sunday morning, after three people reported that shots were fired at them by a man who lived in the neighborhood.

A K-9 team was brought in to help secure the area as officers attempted to execute a search warrant on the home of a 59 year-old man. After two hours of repeated attempts to contact the man, the SWAT team was able to open a bay window, in the home, in order to communicate with the suspect. The man immediately responded to this tactic, surrendering and being taken into custody. Authorities searched the home but were unable to locate a weapon.

The man was taken into custody and lodged at the Kalamazoo County Jail on multiple counts of Felonious Assault.
