Police: Man barricaded mom, girlfriend, child inside home

(WMC-TV) - Police arrested a man who reportedly barricaded his mother, girlfriend, and baby inside a house.

The initial call came in just before 1 p.m.

Officials responded to an apartment on the 900 block of Mississippi Boulevard where they say a 24-year-old man, who was armed with a gun, was not allowing his mother, girlfriend, and 1-year-old child to leave.

Investigators evacuated a nearby apartment complex and told people at a daycare center across the street to lock their doors and move to the back of the building.

According to police, the suspect's mother grabbed the 1-year-old girl and ran out of the apartment. When officers arrived, they say he was still holding his girlfriend up at gunpoint inside the apartment.

The suspect's sister says her brother did the same thing a few months ago. Other than domestic problems, Shannon Stanford says her brother has never been in trouble.

"They used to be together. They done broke up and can't let go. That's pretty much all," she said.

Police and the man's mother were able to convince him to come out after a couple of hours.

No one was injured in the incident.
