Standoff on city’s southside ends peacefully

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — One man is in custody following a standoff with officers on the city’s southside Sunday.

According to IMPD, a man was holding a gun in the 2000 block of Walker Avenue threatening to shoot himself.

It is believed the incident took place outside of  the residence of a woman the suspect shares a child with.

The standoff ended peacefully after the suspect went to the ground on his own will and was then taken into custody.

The standoff caused St. Andrew’s United Methodist and Garfield Christian churches to go into lockdown.

The lockdown on the churches were lifted shortly after the suspect was brought into custody.
