Barricaded subject in Cherry Hill subdivision ends peacefully

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – Police responded after receiving a call Tuesday morning to a home on Kileen Run in the Cherry Hill subdivision. A family member requested police to assist another family member who was having mental issues.

Officers on the scene were not able to make contact with the subject inside the home and due to information that there may be weapons at the subject’s disposal, Crisis Response and Emergency Services Teams were called.

Negotiators attempted numerous times to contact and spoke briefly to the subject. After The Emergency Services Team deployed a distraction device the subject exited the home and surrendered without incident. The subject was taken for medical evaluation.
