SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - The Miami-Dade Police Department has a man in custody after he barricaded himself, armed with a shotgun and allegedly made threats.
Police were engaged in an hours-long standoff with the suspect at Southwest 83rd Avenue and 146th Street, since Monday morning.
The subject, a 77-year-old man, was recovered from his home by a special response team, at around 4 p.m.
The man is said to be a veteran and was seen in a wheelchair outside the home, surrounded by fire rescue and police.
He said he was having a really bad day and called fire rescue to his Southwest Miami-Dade home.
Fire rescue responded to the home, for an unknown medical issue, and was greeted at the door by the man in a wheelchair and with a shotgun.
This led them to call police and SRT.
The subject is said to have been transported to a hospital to receive medical treatment.
