Overnight tactical situation resolved peacefully


by Becky Mortensen

OCONOMOWOC --- A man barricaded himself in his residence for nearly five hours after police were called to the home for a domestic violence report.

It happened around 11:30 p.m. Saturday night in the 900 block of High St. in the City of Oconomowoc.

Police responded for a domestic dispute and when they attempted to make contact with the suspect, he shut himself inside his home. The suspect was identified as a 46-year-old man who claimed to have firearms in his home.

The suspect also made vague comments about what would happen if the police attempted to take him into custody.

The Waukesha County Tactical Unit and other agencies secured the area while the negotiations took place with the suspect.

Around 4:00 a.m. the suspect surrendered to police custody and he was taken to the Waukesha County Jail.
