The U.S. Marshals Service Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team Task Force members arrived at the home at 7:30 a.m. to make an arrest on a felony warrant when the man spotted officers, ran upstairs and barricaded himself in a room, refusing to come out, Dayton police Maj. Brian Johns said at the time.
