ELMWOOD PLACE, OH (FOX19) -

The SWAT team responded to a standoff in Elmwood Place late Tuesday night.

Police were called to the 300 block of Oak St. around 11 p.m. for a report of domestic violence.

When police arrived, the suspect, Jimmie Shrewsbury, went inside and locked himself in the house. The rest of the family remained outside. They told police there was a firearm in the home.

SWAT was called then to help with negotiations. According to Elmwood Police Lt. Kevin Vanover, SWAT initially used Elmwood Elementary as the command center for negotiations. A Metro bus was later dispatched and used as the command center and a place to keep officers warm during the standoff.

Vanover said police used BB guns, not real guns, during the negotiations. SWAT did not force entry, they used a diversionary device to get him to come to the door.

Officials at the scene said when the man finally came to the door, he told police he didn't know they were outside all night and didn't hear his phone ring. Vanover said police know that is not true.

Police said Shrewsbury does have a criminal record and has lived there for a long time.

They described the end of the standoff as peaceful, however, Vanover said Shrewsbury didn't want to get his socks wet when he was taken into custody so he didn't exactly follow officers orders on where he was told to walk.

Neighbors in the area were evacuated from their homes during the standoff.

Shrewsbury, 59, is now facing charges for domestic violence and inducing panic. According to court records, he is accused of choking his wife.

He is due in court Thursday morning.
