Barricaded man surrenders to APD in S. Anchorage
Anchorage Police say they've taken into custody the man who barricaded himself inside a home in south Anchorage.
Around 10:30 Tuesday morning, officers responded to a home in the 12200 block of Brookwood Circle on reports of shots fired. APD says an intoxicated man, identified as 49-year-old Loren C. Jines, fired a shotgun into the ground and went inside his home.
Jines, police say, had since called family members and made suicidal threats.
Patrol officers unsuccessfully attempted to negotiate with Jines, who had been in verbal contact with police but refused to come out; SWAT was called to assist in the incident.
Around 5:40, Jines came out of the home and surrendered himself to SWAT officers.
APD had secured a warrant for Jines' arrest during the standoff on the charges of fourth-degree misconduct involving a weapon (drunk in possession) and fourth-degree misconduct involving a weapon (firing with reckless disregard).
While there were no injuries and APD said the man was alone in the home, police say they blocked off neighboring streets in the event a tactical response had been warranted, including the possibility of deploying gas. Access to the neighborhood could still be gained from Lake Otis, as the neighborhood streets immediately off Gregory, north of Huffman, were blocked.
Nearby residents with respiratory illnesses or sensitivities were told to remain inside with doors and windows closed.
APD said the roads would reopen once the house was cleared and SWAT had time to secure their equipment.
