AURORA, Colo. — Aurora police were working around the 1800 block of S. Truckee Way Thursday morning to arrest an armed domestic violence suspect who refused to come out of a home.

The suspect left the home around 9 a.m. and was taken into custody, police said. He was taken to a hospital as a precaution first.

SWAT was at the scene. Nearby residents were asked to shelter in place, police said.

At 8:26 a.m., SWAT used foam rounds to break out the windows of the home to better communicate with the suspect, police said. People in the area may have heard a loud noise.

Drivers and pedestrians should avoid the area.
