COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo - A standoff ended with two arrests and no one hurt in Colorado Springs on Thursday afternoon.
The situation began as a domestic problem, according to witnesses at the Cheyenne Vista Apartments in the 400 block of Crestone Lane. A witness told KRDO NewsChannel 13 that they heard a couple arguing and a child screaming.
An armed man, identified as 23-year-old Julian Gutierrez barricaded himself inside the apartment with 26-year-old Christine Aleman and 5-year-old boy around 7:30 a.m. Nearby apartment units were evacuated as a precaution.
Police said Gutierrez was wanted on several other warrants but would not elaborate. Around 1 p.m., the man peacefully surrendered. No one was injured.
Gutierrez was arrested and is charged with a felony weapons possession charge.
Aleman was also arrested and charged with child abuse and criminal negligence charges.
All evacuations have since been lifted.
The boy is currently staying with relatives.
