On December 16, 2020: MPD units were dispatched to a disturbance. As MPD units were responding they learned one or more of the subjects were armed. Officers located four individuals: one suspect was armed with an AR style pistol and the other was armed with an imitation firearm.
As officers detained the four suspects, two of them fled on foot. Officers and detective’s set-up a perimeter and began searching for the two outstanding suspects. One officer interviewed a neighbor and learned the suspects fled to a nearby apartment. The officers and detectives responded to the apartment and safely took the two outstanding suspects into custody.
All four suspects were verbally abusive to the officers and detectives at the scene and they continued verbal assaults towards the Police Services Technicians while being booked, or released on a citation. One suspect physically resisted officers at the scene, while another resisted booking at the jail.
All of the MPD staff worked together to make four arrests and remove a dangerous firearm from the community. This was a great example of teamwork and all should be commended for their professionalism, demeanor, and performance during this incident.
