The man arrested early Wednesday morning following a standoff near West Colfax Avenue and Yates Street had an outstanding warrant out of Lakewood and is now being held for possession of a weapon by a previous offender, according to Denver Police.

The search for Karl Christopherson prompted Denver Police to issue a "shelter in place" warning early Wednesday for residents near Colfax and Yates.

At 4:46 a.m., police tweeted that Christopherson had been arrested.
