The incident started around 3:30 p.m. on Monday when the unidentified man told police he would shoot his girlfriend if they tried to gain entry into the house. Huron Township Police and The Downriver Mutual Aid Task Force responded with a SWAT team and a negotiator. 

Following hours of negotiation, police were able to get him to come out of the home and at that point, the man was taken into custody.
