SPOKANE, Wash. - One person is in custody after a SWAT situation in north Spokane early Saturday morning.
It started just before 4:30 AM near the intersection of Freya and Francis. Police told KHQ they received a call about an armed person randomly shooting a gun in the street.
The suspect actually crashed his car near the Freya roundabout and then went to the neighborhood of Lyons and Julia. That's when neighbors began noticing that he was firing a gun.
When authorities arrived the suspect fled to a nearby house and refused to go peacefully.
More police were called to surround the area and after about an hour and a half the suspect was taken into custody after being shot with a bean bag and with the assistance of a K-9 unit.
The suspect is now in jail and roads that were blocked during the standoff have been reopened. His identity has not yet been confirmed with law enforcement. As soon as we get any confirmation, we'll update this story.
