PARKER, Colo. — A suspect was taken into custody Tuesday after buildings were evacuated for a barricaded individual at a Parker apartment complex.

The Parker Police Department (PPD) received a call about a harassment at Montane apartments at 8:40 p.m. Monday. The apartment complex is at South Parker Road and Cottonwood Drive.

At 8:14 a.m. Tuesday, officers evacuated two buildings and put adjacent buildings on shelter in place.

At 10:35 a.m., the Douglas County Sheriff's Office SWAT breached the apartment and took the suspect into custody. A victim who was inside the apartment was safe, said PPD spokesman Josh Hans.

Hans said the first PPD officer arrived on scene about 2:30 a.m. and that the delay in response was because the caller didn't provide an address and the initial call was made through Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP). Unlike with landline and cellphone calls, authorities can't immediately trace the location of VOIP calls, he said.

PPD hadn't yet released the suspect's identity.

There will be a police presence in the area throughout the day for the investigation, PPD said.
