A man in a standoff at his home in West Anchorage, during which he threatened another man with a shotgun, has surrendered to Anchorage police.
APD says the man had barricaded himself in a home on the 1200 block of Chugach Way.
According to APD spokesperson Lt. Dave Parker, "It started with an incident where the suspect groped a woman he didn't know and her husband confronted the man."
Parker says, "He then pulled out a shotgun and ran inside... That's when the SWAT team surrounded the home."
At about 9:30 p.m., a negotiator delivered a warning through a megaphone: “This is your last chance! I need you to come out right now -- your house is about to get rearranged.”
That warning was followed at about 10 p.m. by the SWAT team quickly moving in to ram the home with an armored vehicle. That impact was followed by the detonation of several grenades filled with OC gas, similar to pepper spray, intended to force the suspect out of his home. They were apparently successful, and the man surrendered by 10:45 p.m.This is a developing story. Check KTUU.com and the Channel 2 newscasts for updates.
