PUYALLUP, Wash. — Roads were closed in Puyallup for several hours Thursday evening as police were engaged in a stand-off with a man wanted in a domestic violence case.
Puyallup Police said they responded to a home in the area of 9th Avenue SW and 5th Street SW after the man reportedly went there and violated a ‘no contact’ order. Police said the man claimed to be armed and is refusing to come out of the home.
The home was evacuated and he was the only one inside during the stand-off, officials said. The man surrendered and was in custody as of 8:47 p.m.
