Man arrested after barricade in Lakewood hotel

Lakewood Police arrested a wanted fugitive after a six-hour standoff late Friday night.

LAKEWOOD, Colo. — Officers arrested an armed man Friday night who was holed up in a room for six hours at the Quality Inn & Suites at West 6th Avenue and Simms Street, Lakewood Police said in a news release.

According to the Lakewood Police Department (LPD), officers were notified by another agency that Casey Henni, 35, was staying at the hotel and was wanted by the Colorado Department of Corrections for menacing with a deadly weapon, fraud, forgery and escape.

LPD officers attempted to arrest Henni when he fired a single shot at the officers from a handgun while in his hotel room, according to the release.

West Metro and Jefferson County SWAT teams were called in, the release says. The hotel was evacuated, LPD said.

About 11 p.m., negotiators were able to get Henni to surrender without further incident, LPD said.

Neither the officers nor the suspect was injured, said LPD, which added that the police department's investigation at the hotel was continuing into Saturday afternoon.
