On Friday morning, Officers approached the duplex near 42nd and Sherman. Long was there and ran inside the home. The other people in the building were able to get out safely.

Officers needed the room for their mobile command center and tactical vehicles. 

Later, police appeared to fire tear gas into the home. MPD negotiators eventually convinced Long into surrendering.

Officials say this standoff never became violent. Nobody was hurt.
