A wanted felon surrendered to authorities Thursday after a lengthy standoff in northwest Oklahoma City.

Vice detectives were looking for Jordan Williams, 27, following a prostitution sting earlier in the week.

The fugitive had been on the run from Jackson County where he had warrants for several felony charges. Williams now faces possible prostitution-related complaints in Oklahoma City.

The TACT team surrounded an apartment complex near Northwest 10th and Council Road after Williams barricaded himself inside Thursday night.

“They had other people come out and indicate the suspect was in there,” said MSgt. Gary Knight, Oklahoma City Police Department. “Suspect again refused to come out.”

Vice detectives were led to the suspect after a prostitution sting. A woman arrested in the sting named Williams as an associate.

“Or for lack of a better term being a pimp,” said Knight. 

Undercover police spotted Williams outside on his phone at the complex and watched him go inside.

“They were able to identify which apartment he was in,” said Knight. “Knocked on the door, he refused to come out.”

After hours of trying to get him out, police got a search warrant and the TACT team used measures to force Williams out.

“They put in gas, shot gas into the apartment, irritant gas,” said Knight. “After that he came out and peacefully surrendered himself.”

Williams was arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County Detention Center but will likely be extradited to Jackson County. He was wanted on two shooting with intent to kill charges, armed robbery and burglary charges dating back several months.

After the standoff police searched Williams' apartment. They took his phone and a loaded gun as evidence.

Williams has had several felony convictions, so he will also be charged for owning a gun.
