GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Grand Rapids police say they took a wanted man into custody after a brief standoff Tuesday.
The Grand Rapids Police Department said in a tweet around 11:45 a.m. Tuesday that it was “operating a critical incident” in the 2100 block of Kalamazoo Avenue SE south of Burton Street.
Police later said they were working to arrest a man who was wanted on multiple felony warrants, though they did not say what specifically he was accused of. He had barricaded himself in a home with his three children.
After speaking with negotiators, he gave himself up to police. The children were returned safely to their mother.
Police left the scene by around 12:30 p.m.
The man’s name was not immediately released. Arraignment was expected to happen Wednesday.
