SWAT suspect undergoing psychiatric evaluation at hospital

COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

A 32-year-old man who police say held them at bay for several hours Sunday night is undergoing a psychiatric evaluation at Deaconess Hospital, according to Colerain Township police.

The suspect was taken into custody just before 10 p.m. after a SWAT standoff began about 5:30 p.m.

The standoff unfolded just after two people, including a 15-year-old girl, were shot in the same complex, on a basketball court in the front of Ashley Woods Apartments in the 2000 block of Walden Glen Drive, police said early Monday.

The standoff and man involved had nothing to do with the shootings, said Officer Corey Doyle.

The SWAT suspect's apartment is in the back of the complex. He has been upset since he was the victim of a home invasion last week when some of his cash and items were stolen, police said.

“He has been hallucinating and saying the people (who robbed him) kept banging on his door and coming back over and over,” Doyle said. “We responded there several times. I guess (Sunday) it was too much. I am not sure if the gunfire (from the shootings) set him off or what. Detectives determined there was no one  inside his apartment.”

Police plan to check with the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office before deciding what, if any, charges the man will face.

Meanwhile, the shooting victims are expected to recover.

The girl, who was shot in the foot, was taken to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries.

A second gunshot victim, a 22-year-old man, drove himself to Mercy Fairfield Hospital. 

The incident drew police from eight departments including Colerain Township, Fairfield, Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, Springdale, Springfield Township, Mt. Healthy, North College Hill and Forest Park.
