UPDATE: Barricaded subject safely in custody

Pennington County Sheriff’s Office Captain Tony Harrison spoke to the media about the Special Response Team used in the standoff, saying, “These are lifesaving pieces of equipment that we’re using and we’re using them because we want to make sure this young person came out safely and with people that can deal with them, versus someone that may have to make a different decision because they don’t have the equipment. So the SRT is a life-saving machine or a life-saving tool is what we are, and it worked today.”

BARRICADED SUBJECT UPDATE: The barricaded subject at 1221 W. Omaha Street has been taken safely into custody. We’re currently working to clear law enforcement resources from the scene.
