UPDATE: Man was asleep during standoff; woke up and surrendered
OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City man is in jail after a four-hour standoff came to an end with police in the southwest part of the city.
Kelley James lives in an apartment across the street from where the standoff took place, near Grand and Western.
James said, “I woke up to helicopters flying all over the place and I’m saying, ‘Lord, what’s going on?”
She watched the situation play out for hours, and says she was relieved to see the suspect, 29-year-old Jose Manuel Gutierrez, finally turn himself over to police.
Officials said the suspect was sleeping inside and didn’t hear the commotion outside of his home.
James was surprised the suspect didn’t hear police outside.
She said, “I really didn’t know what to think. I was scared. I’ve never saw something like this in my life.”
Police said they got a call around 2:45 a.m. about a domestic dispute.
At the scene, officials could tell someone was hurt.
Capt. Dexter Nelson, with the Oklahoma City Police Department, said, “They found a woman that was running outside, she was covered in blood. She was saying there was some shots fired inside of the home.”
As it turns out, no one was shot.
However, police say the woman covered in blood is related to the suspect.
She’d been beaten and was taken to the hospital.
James said, “Really scary, it could’ve been anyone. It could have been me, anybody.”
The suspect is faced with a list of charges, including assault and battery with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm after being convicted of a felony.
