    On September 21, 2013 at 4:12 p.m., a 911 call came in about a domestic violence in progress in the area of Cypress Ridge Place and Country Run Road. When a deputy arrived on scene, the deputy observed the suspect leaving the neighborhood in his vehicle. The deputy followed the suspect awaiting back up. The suspect saw the deputy following him and pulled through a parking lot located at Gunn Hwy. and Plantation Blvd. He then drove back to a home on Cypress Ridge Place and ran inside with a firearm in his hand.

    Once inside, the suspect closed all of the blinds and locked the doors. Patrol units arrived and set up a perimeter. A patrol supervisor tried to negotiate with the suspect over the phone, but was unsuccessful. While on the phone with the patrol supervisor, the suspect indicated that he wanted to take his own life.

    The SWAT team was activated at 4:40 p.m. Once on scene, SWAT members evacuated 8 nearby residences. Crisis Negotiators then made contact with the suspect over the phone and ultimately talked the suspect into coming out of the home. The suspect was arrested at around 6:45 p.m. The suspect will be Baker Acted.

    According to the victim (suspect's girlfriend), before deputies arrived on scene, the couple was arguing when the suspect armed himself with a firearm. The suspect held the victim at gunpoint inside of her home and threatened to kill her and then take his own life.
