Police On Scene Of A Barricaded Subject In Camden - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

UPDATE: Barricade Suspect Now In Custody

Posted: Updated:

CAMDEN, Del. – A barricade situation ends with an arrest late Wednesday night. Delaware State Police tell WMDT the suspect was taken into custody just after 10:20 PM.  Initial reports show the Delaware State Police Special Operations Team (SORT) made their way into the suspect's home and took him into custody at 10:10PM. No word yet on how the operation took place. 

We're told the subject did suffer unspecified self-inflicted wounds and was treated by State Police SORT medics. He was then reportedly taken to an area hospital for further evaluation. His condition is not known at this time. Police still have not released the man's identity, however they say he is 49-years-old.

Delaware State Police say that the incident started at a home on Green Winged Trail in Wild Quail in Camden around 12 PM Wednesday afternoon. They reportedly got a call around 2 PM, after the woman allegedly involved in what is being called a domestic dispute, made contact with an ambulance after leaving the home. Authorities have not released how the man and woman are connected.

Since that time the Delaware State Police SORT and Conflict Management Team attempted to make contact with the subject. They tell WMDT that the subject was armed with an unknown type firearm throughout the incident. We're told no other people were inside the home during the barricade and that no other injuries were reported.

As a precaution, troopers evacuated several homes in the area shortly after they responded to the scene and both entrances to Green Winged Trail were blocked off. Residents were allowed back into their homes around 10:30 PM.

The investigation is ongoing and charges are pending. We will continue to bring you the latest information as it becomes available. Stay tuned to WMDT and wmdt.com for the very latest
