The incident ended around 7:30 p.m. One person was taken into custody and two others were taken in for questioning.
“I saw an older gentleman run around the side of the house. I don’t know if they tripped him, tased him or tackled him. I just saw him on the ground and I saw the lady and other gentleman come walking out between the houses and they were already in cuffs,” witness Jacob Broadwater said.
