Domestic violence suspect surrenders peacefully in Aurora

An armed domestic violence suspect was refusing to leave a home in the 1800 block of South Truckee Street but surrendered without incident, police said.

AURORA, Colo. — A shelter in place for some residents Thursday morning was lifted after officers arrested an armed domestic violence suspect who had been refusing to leave a house, the Aurora Police Department (APD) said.

In a tweet, APD said there was heavy police presence in the 1800 block of South Truckee Street as they worked to get the suspect to surrender. That's near the intersection of E. Ashbury Drive and S. Telluride Street. 

A shelter in place order was ordered for nearby residents. A SWAT team used foam rounds to break out windows of the home to help with better communication with the suspect, an APD tweet says.

Just after 9 a.m., APD said in a tweet that the man had exited the home and was "safely placed into custody." No injuries were reported.

All residents were allowed to return home but detectives will remain in the area as they continue their investigation.
