KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — A man was arrested after a short standoff in Kalamazoo Wednesday.
It happened around 12:10 p.m. in the 800 block of West Cedar near S. Westnedge Avenue, not far from Western Michigan University campus.
Officers responding to reports of shots fired spoke with a woman who said she got into a disagreement with a man she lived with, the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety said in a release. The man pointed a gun at her during the argument, police say. They say he then walked outside and started arguing with a male family member.
He then fired a gun at him, police say.
KDPS says the victim left before officers arrived and refused to cooperate with the investigation. Officers do not believe he was injured.
The woman was also not injured.
The suspect went back into a home and refused to leave. Police say negotiators with Kalamazoo’s SWAT team contacted him, and after a short standoff he came back outside, where he was arrested.
While investigating officers found evidence of the felonious assault that was initially reported.
The suspect, a 19-year-old man from Kalamazoo, faces multiple felony charges, KDPS says.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call KDPS at 337.8120 or Silent Observer at 343.2100.
