BNPD responded to a call for a welfare concern in the area of Eagle Run around 10:15 a.m. Saturday. Due to the possibility of injuries to a victim, multiple units arrived on scene and an approximately 6-hour standoff ensued. At approximately 4 p.m., the suspect was apprehended without incident and another individual was checked out by paramedics for minor injuries and transported from the scene.
