Man has 4 hour standoff with police

Updated:

A man was arrested after a four hour standoff with Indianapolis Metro Police near 38th Street and Guion Road on the northwest side.

Officers were called to the 3400 block of Leatherbury Lane in Abney Lake Apartments on a disturbance.  Officials say when police went to the apartment, a male saw it was the police and slammed the door.  The suspect then yelled from a window for police not to come closer or he would shoot. 

Witnesses told police the man was armed.  That's when SWAT and negotiators were called to the scene. 

Police say there were people in the apartment before police were called.  One suffered injuries from being assaulted.

Just after 6 a.m. the standoff ended without incident.

IMPD officials say the man will face a charge of felony battery.
