Police Surround Home After Report of Man Threatening Family Member With Gun

Police car lightsArlington County Police surrounded a home, shut down streets, called in a negotiator and had a brief standoff with a man in the Nauck neighborhood this morning.

The incident happened around 10 a.m., when police received a report of a man who threatened a family member with a gun, at a home near the intersection of S. Kenmore Street and 22nd Street, according to ACPD spokeswoman Ashley Savage. The man was said to be holed up in the home’s basement with gun and a machete.

The incident ended as quickly as it began, when the man came out of the home and was placed in handcuffs.

“He has been taken into custody without incident,” Savage said. “This is an active investigation and police remain in the area.”
