Wanted suspect arrested after SWAT standoff on South Hill

A suspect was arrested Tuesday afternoon following a SWAT standoff on East 29th Avenue.

The incident began at about 2 p.m. on East 29th Avenue near Division Street. Both Jefferson Elementary and Sacajawea Middle School were notified, which Humphreys said was to prevent students from walking home from school through the scene. 

The suspect was arrested by 3 p.m. and police began to clear the area.
