Threats lead to SWAT action, evacuation, arrest in Alexandria
Local law enforcement agencies responded to a threatening situation in Alexandria Tuesday afternoon.
As a precaution, tenants of the apartment building were evacuated and taken to a nearby warm shelter. They were allowed to return to the building about an hour later after a suspect, James Allen Dean, 30, of Alexandria was taken into custody.
Dean was arrested and is awaiting charges of terroristic threats and obstructing the legal process.
He remains in the Douglas County Jail at this time.
There was one weapon seized and no one was injured during the incident, according to the Alexandria Police Department.
