ASSAULT/ARREST: Southeastern District -- Police arrested a 22-year-old North Kenwood Avenue man Saturday morning after he reportedly pointed a loaded handgun at three police officers who were trying to talk him out of killing himself during a stand-off that lasted several hours. Sgt. James Schuck said that when officers arrived at the rowhouse in the 400 block of N. Kenwood Ave. shortly after midnight Saturday they saw the man inside his house armed with a handgun and drinking from a whiskey bottle. Schuck said that when Lt. Ernie Meadows and officers William Murray and Richard Guzman confronted the man and tried to talk him into surrendering, the man pointed a .32-caliber semiautomatic handgun to his head and threatened to shoot. Schuck said the man then lowered the gun and pointed it at the three officers. After backing out of the house, the officers summoned the police Quick Response Team and a hostage negotiator. For the next five hours, the police talked to the man by phone, trying to get him to surrender. In the house was the man's father, who had armed himself with a .38-caliber revolver to protect himself from his son. Schuck said that about 4:40 a.m. Saturday, the QRT entered the house and found the man asleep in a second-floor room. He was arrested without incident and sent to a hospital for treatment of alcohol intoxication. Later, the man was taken to the police station and charged with assaulting the three officers by pointing a handgun at them and handgun counts. Held over the weekend and scheduled to appear at a bail hearing today in District Court is Randy Allen, a resident of the house in which the incident occurred.
