Police say that the suspect — later identified as Lorenzo— was then reportedly seen entering a house where an extended standoff with police took place.

Officers tried to communicate with Lorenzo to peacefully de-escalate the situation, according to the statement.  

At the same time, police say officers evacuated the other occupants from the multi-floor residential building.

Shortly before 6:30 a.m., Lorenzo was arrested without incident and taken to the police station, according to the statement.

No one was injured.

Police say a loaded firearm was recovered from the bed of a truck parked outside the residence and additional ballistic evidence was recovered on the ground near the house.
