After being involved in a five-hour long standoff, Tulsa Police took a shooting suspect into custody.

Police said officers were doing a pedestrian check on him but he ran away, jumped a few fences then doubled back to a friend's house. Police said the man broke into the home and barricaded himself inside.

Police said they surrounded the home and were told there were at least three guns inside at the time.

nd the people who live there returned to help talk Vineyard into coming out peacefully.

Police said no one else was in the home, but throughout the day, friends and family came to the home and pleaded with Vineyard turn himself in.

He eventually surrendered peacefully and no one was hurt.

"We caught a bad guy. He's a suspect in a shooting. We did a very minimal amount of damage to private citizens' third-party home. Nobody was injured in this situation whatsoever, so, it was slow and meticulous and we had a lot of resources out here and we couldn't be happier with the outcome," Sergeant Richard Meulenberg said.

EMSA units were on the scene as a precaution.

TPD worked with Tulsa Public Schools to coordinate after school drop-off for kids who live on that street. They are also contacted parents to figure out how to get the children home. Buses were re-routed to avoid the area.
