Doering, Patrick
Negotations Case Presentation: Barricade Suspect with Shot Fired

This presentation will discuss a domestic disturbance incident involving a suspect who patrol officers had responded to the night before and who had multiple felony warrants. The suspect barricaded in the basement and when patrol formed a react team, they entered the basement along with a K9. Upon entry, the K9 contacted the suspect and a gunshot was heard. Officers disengaged and SWAT and negotiators were activated. Discussion will involve attempts at negotiation involving voice-to-voice contact and eventually the use of a throw phone. The suspect made several suicide by cop statements and after several hours, gas was deployed into the residence. After approximately nine hours, the suspect surrendered. The presentation includes audio of the negotiations and an interview with the K9 officer.
