Man arrested near school after standoff with cops

A man has been arrested in the town of Parker after a standoff with law enforcement officers from various area agencies.

The man, who was reportedly wanted for homicide, was barricaded inside an apartment near the intersection of 9th Street and Mohave Avenue in Parker on Monday afternoon. Agencies including La Paz County Sheriff’s Department, Parker Police Department, Colorado River Indian Tribes Police Department and River Medical were on scene for well over an hour.

Officers in full SWAT-style gear surrounded the house, and spoke to the suspect through a loudspeaker, demanding that he come out.

“Nobody has to get hurt,” one officer told him. “Come out with your hands up right now, or force will be used. Give yourself up.”

At one point, a stun grenade known as a flashbang was used, as well as loud noises from a siren. A police K-9 was also on scene. Blake Primary School was reportedly on lockdown while the arrest was being made.

After some time, the suspect was apparently apprehended and taken into custody by the Colorado River Indian Tribes Police Department.

  10. Wow, just like magic: put the words “near a school” and your story gets picked up by national news. Even though it has nothing to do with a school shooting. Are you guys really that much of a media whore?

  11. David: (1) I wasn’t aware that this story had been “picked up by national news.” Got a link? (2) The reason the headline and story contained reference to the school is that this happened less than a block from the school and it had to be placed on lockdown during the incident, which is information parents in the town of Parker want to know. (3) You’re right, it has absolutely nothing to do with a school shooting. Nobody said it did! (4) Who is the “you guys” you refer to when you ask if we’re media whores?

  12. Is there some kind of victims claim we can do that was our house someone was watching it we were in town now it cost us our house while we were in the hospital who do I contact what do I do no house insurance.
