(WXYZ) — Detroit police say a homicide suspect is now in custody after an hours-long barricaded situation on the city's west side on Monday.
Residents were asked to stay indoors as the situation unfolded around 11 a.m. at a home in the 8200 block of Pierson. That's north of Tireman and west of Evergreen.
Police say the suspect was wanted in the killing of a neighbor on Sunday night from the same street. We're told an altercation at a barbecue may have led to the fatal shooting.
Police say when officers approached the suspect, he fled and went into the house on Monday morning. Police say a 2-year-old was in the home during the ordeal on Monday.
Shortly after 4 p.m., police say the suspect came out and was taken into custody; the child is expected to be reunited with their mother shortly.
