Members of law enforcement arrested an individual inside an apartment at Henderson Court on April 20, 2024. The standoff was over by 11:35 p.m. according to the Bloomington Police Department. Officers from CIRT began shouting commands around 11:23 p.m.

When the man had refused to come out of the apartment, police got a search warrant, and went inside eventually to get him. He was found in an upstairs bedroom, according to police.

Eyewitnesses reported to the Bloomingtonian observing police positioned behind vehicles and issuing commands via loudspeakers for an individual to exit an apartment. Residents of the affected apartment were reportedly evacuated during the incident.

After the man was arrested he was taken to the Bloomington Police Department for questioning in another criminal case according to police. While in a room for questioning, the suspect picked up a chair, and threw it, damaging a camera, and multiple ceiling tiles, and putting a dent in a door, along with scuff marks in the room.

The suspect, whose residence is listed as 1610 North Kinser Pike, was arrested at the 2300 block of South Winslow Court in Bloomington, Indiana.
