The Dayton police SWAT team responded to the suspect’s home in the 100 block of Livingston Avenue around 4:20 p.m. in Dayton. Police also checked a vacant home neighbors said the man spends time at in the 200 block of Livingston Avenue.

According to Beavers, the suspect was not located in either home but was found and detained a short while later at another location out of the city.

He [the suspect] was wanted for a violent crime that occurred over the weekend; and after investigation, there were believed to be weapons in the house, according to Beavers.

Police used a bullhorn to attempt to communicate with the suspect and approached the home with caution.

On entering the house safely, Beavers said, “It’s safer for not only us and him, but also to the neighborhood, to do everything slow and methodically--instead of just sending a couple officers in and kicking a door and maybe being greeted by someone with a weapon.”

Several neighbors said they were alarmed to come home to find a huge police presence outside their homes.
“You know, I just got off work at 8 o’clock, come home, and I have police telling me I can’t park in my parking spot...It’s ridiculous. We have three kids that live in the house, so I thought something for the worst happened,” said a neighbor.

Police have not released the name of the suspect.

It is unknown if the suspect has mental health issues, and the case is still being investigated.
