FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Fort Wayne Police took a suspect into custody early Sunday morning after an overnight standoff on the city’s southeast side.

Rushawn King

There was a large police presence around the 4300 block of Joshua Lane- part of an apartment complex- starting sometime before 3 a.m. A WANE 15 crew at the scene said there were at least 20 police cars in the area. The police log initially reported the incident as a family fight, with at least one person suspected to be armed, at 2:36 a.m.

According to a press release from FWPD later that morning, a woman had called 911 just after 2:30 a.m. saying her boyfriend- who had been drinking- threatened to shoot her during an argument and then left, shooting his gun outside the apartment.

There were more than 20 squad cars at the apartment complex.

The woman said he then came back and hit her. She fled to a nearby gas station to call police, the release said.

Police said they identified the suspect as Rushawn King, and found that he had an outstanding warrant. When police got to the scene, they reportedly tried calling King’s cell phone and tried using a loudspeaker, but got no response.

Neighbors in the apartment complex were evacuated for their safety.

Police brought more emergency crews to the scene, along with crisis response and aerial service units. When investigators were still not able to communicate with King, the release said officers got a warrant to get inside the apartment.

The release said just after 7 a.m., the suspect came out the front door and was taken into custody after more than four hours of trying to communicate with him. Neither police nor the suspect were injured in the incident, officers said.

FWPD is still investigating.
