    Memorial Day Barricaded Man, 1700 Block E. 4th St.; Officers & SWAT Team Successfully Subdue Him Without Injuries

    (May 26, 2003) -- A 34 year old man, who allegedly threatened his mother with a pair of scissors, barricaded himself in a residence in the 1700 block of E. 4th St. at mid-afternoon on Memorial day, prompting an LBPD response that involved crisis team negotiators and the SWAT Team.

    LBPD Public Information Officer Greg Schirmer told the man's mother fled the residence and called police, saying her son was wielding scissors and had threatened her with them.

    Officer Schirmer said responding officers found the man uncooperative...and at one point he allegedly threatened the officers. The officers tried using a "taser" round on the man, which had almost no effect on him.

    The man was not holding hostages, and officers pulled back and summoned LBPD crisis negotiators and the SWAT Team. After the negotiators tried and got nowhere, the SWAT team entered and used another taser round, subduing the man.

    Per standard policy following use of a "taser" round, the man was taken to an area hospital for evaluation, and will then likely be given a mental evaluation.

    LBPD resolved the tense barricade situation without any injuries.
