MENOMINEE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLUC) - UPDATE: Police responded to a domestic assault and a report of a man with a gun at 7:22 a.m. Thursday on 18th Avenue in Menominee Township.

The Menominee County Sheriff’s Office and Menominee City Police Department were alerted that a man with a handgun had barricaded himself inside the residence at W6122 18th Ave.

Law enforcement officers formed a perimeter around the home while a Menominee County Sheriff’s Office negotiator attempted to contact the individual to request a peaceful surrender. Neighboring residents were advised of the situation and had the option to evacuate or shelter in place.

The man refused the negotiator’s request, which prompted the Marinette County Special Response Team, the Marinette Police Department Tactical Response Unit, and the Menominee Police Department Robotics Unit to get involved.

Negotiations continued into the afternoon. When the man would still not comply with law enforcement, the tactical units deployed OC gas into the house. The man exited the home unarmed and was taken into custody.

A woman was also apprehended in connection to this incident. Both subjects are currently lodged in the Menominee County Jail, pending arraignment.

The Menominee County Sheriff’s Office detectives, negotiator team, and deputies were assisted by the Menominee City Police, including K9 and Robotics Units; Marinette County Sheriff’s Office and Special Response Team; Marinette City Police and Tactical Response Unit; the Michigan State Police; Menominee County Central Dispatch, and Aurora Bay Area Paramedics.
