A man who had barricaded himself in a Fairfield house where he had reportedly been threatening his family members with a gun earlier this afternoon was safely taken into custody tonight, a police sergeant said. Officers responded to the 1100 block of Cormorant Court at 1:27 p.m. after receiving reports that a man in a house there was breaking things and threatening family members with a gun, police Sgt. Matt Bloesch said.
Police managed to get the rest of the family out of the house, but the suspect remained inside. A SWAT team has responded to try to negotiate with the person, Bloesch said. The man was taken into custody peacefully at about 8:30 p.m. and then taken to a hospital as a precaution, Bloesch said. He was expected to be booked into jail later tonight.
