UPDATE: Man taken into custody as West End apartment barricade situation ends peacefully

(Updated 3:45 p.m.) Alexandria Police have resolved the barricade situation at an 11th floor apartment in Seminary Towers (4701 Kenmore Avenue) in the West End.

Police tweeted that the standoff came to an end at around 3 p.m., and that evacuated residents have been allowed to return to their apartments. Residents in the 10th, 11th and 12th floors were evacuated by police at around noon and were told that tear gas may have to be employed against the suspect.

“APD was serving a warrant from another jurisdiction,” APD senior public information officer Amanda Paga told ALXnow. “The adult male subject refused to comply.”

The identity of the man has not been released, and police said he was alone in the apartment.
