At about 4:33pm yesterday, Aberdeen Officers were dispatched to a 911 open-line from a residence in South Aberdeen. A female was heard screaming in the background regarding a subject having a gun.
Officers responded to the residence and upon arrival, they were contacted outside by the victim. The victim, who was the suspect’s ex-wife, reported her ex-husband came to her house and threatened himself and her with a firearm and was currently inside her residence.
Officers blocked the streets and set up containment around the residence, and called out to the suspect with their PA system to exit the residence. The suspect complied and exited the residence, where he was detained while officers continued their investigation. A small caliber pistol was subsequently located hidden inside a couch cushion by the front door.
