The standoff happened in the 600 block of S.E. 31st Street. The SWAT team was on scene and blocked off the streets as they tried to encourage the suspect to surrender.

News 9 learned that Loman at first tried to run away, but then chose run back into the house. That's when the gang unit called for the tact team.
