In an update, police said the person inside the house was arrested just before 3pm
Police said no further information will be released due to the ongoing investigation.
Neighbors in the area said they could hear police officers and relatives trying to get this person to come outside and cooperate. Law enforcement, including a narcotics unit, spent hours entering and exiting the home after they were granted access.
A neighbor described the scene and said it looked and felt like the military had taken over their neighborhood. Kent Schaffer said: My wife came outside not knowing anything was going on, but she could hear over a loudspeaker someone telling her to come outside and keep her hands where we can see them. So she looks around to see who that is. She couldn’t see it, but they gave directions to a person in the house. So she went around the corner here on Willowick to see what the problem was. There were several police cars. The street was cordoned off and they kept people off Del Monte.
Neighbors said the homeowner was a well-known doctor, but ABC 13 has not confirmed the arrestee’s identity or charges.
