Suspect in custody after hours-long standoff in Dayton

DAYTON — One person is in custody after an hours-long standoff in Dayton.

This all started when the Dayton Police were called by the U.S. Marshals about an individual who was wanted by the U.S. Marshal Task Force for federal weapons charges. They said he was held up inside a house on King Ave.

“They had an individual inside the house that was wanted for felony crimes, and was supposedly armed with high powered weapons and was refusing to come out of the residence,” Dayton Police Major Chris Malson said.

After a couple of hours on the scene, SWAT was called in.

During the roughly four-hour standoff, police had a section of Wayne and King Avenues shut down.

New Center 7 was on the scene as police shot tear gas into the home. As reported on News Center 7 at 5:00, our team could hear more than 30 canisters shot into the house. Our team also heard police talking to the suspect over a loudspeaker.

“Come out of the front door and let me see your hands,” an officer could be heard saying on a bullhorn.

Jai Redic, of Dayton, told News Center 7 that this wasn’t the first incident like this in the neighborhood.

“It’s a nice neighborhood, but when it goes down around here, it’s crazy,” Redic said. “This is not the first one.”

The suspect, later identified as 37-year-old Noah Lowe, was taken into custody around 3:20 p.m. News Center 7′s John Bedell said he was limping as he exited the home and was evaluated by medics for a minor leg injury.

After Lowe was taken into custody, SWAT went in to clear the house to make sure it was empty.
