When officers arrived, they found “an armed person” on a second floor balcony. Early police reports did not indicate the gender of the person.
After initial negotiations with the person to surrender failed, police called an Operation 100, which is a tactical response to a barricaded person.
Police took the person into custody about 5:25 a.m. without incident.
