Sioux Falls Standoff Ends Peacefully



Bookmark and Share

Carl Jerome Stanley II, who was one of Minnehaha County's most wanted fugitives, was arrested Friday, Oct. 18 after barricading himself in his apartment for nearly three hours.

The Minnehaha County Warrant Task Force was called to an apartment at 518 W. 8th St. around 11 a.m. Friday morning.

The task force received information that a man with active warrants out for escape and child support was inside one of the apartments. There was the chance that the suspect was armed with a firearm, making him a potential threat to others in the area.

"What they'll do in a situation like this is they've obviously got a perimeter set up to keep people out away from it to try to make sure that every body's going to be safe," said Officer Sam Clemens.

Police, SWAT, and Crisis Negotiators were called to the area shortly after to assist with the call.

Residents say they heard police come into the building, and tell the suspect to come out with his hands up, before they were also told to evacuate the building.

After residents were evacuated, law enforcement officials took their time negotiating with the suspect, surrounding all sides of the building.

"Really what we're trying to do is make contact with this person and see if we can get him to come out peacefully without any problems," said Officer Sam Clemens.

In the end, Carl Stanley gave himself up peacefully around 2:00 p.m. and thankfully nobody was harmed.

It has not been released what type of firearm the suspect had in his apartment. This is the second standoff law enforcement officials have been called to in the past week.
