YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Youngstown Police arrested two men after a standoff early Friday morning on the city’s south side.
One of the men was Shun Moreland of Youngstown.
Police arrived on scene, surrounding a home on Rush Boulevard sometime before 2:30 a.m. Police said a concerned citizen heard fighting in the house and called police.
Police on scene say they were serving a domestic warrant. When they approached the house, police said that they heard a baby crying. Officers said that Moreland would not come out at first.
One officer was seen communicating to those inside using a bullhorn. At one point, police asked one man to exit the house slowly, with his hands up. Police say the man did come out peacefully.
The incident lasted about an hour. The scene was cleared around 3:30 a.m.
Police said that Moreland was charged with obstructing official business and he had a warrant for domestic violence. Officers said that another man was arrested for having a warrant that is unrelated to this incident.
Moreland was in court Friday where bond was set at $3,000 on the domestic violence charge and $2,000 on the obstructing justice charge. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 22 and 25 on the two cases.
