Motel SWAT standoff ends after gunshots; 2 arrested

HARALSON COUNTY, Ga. — Two people were arrested hours after a SWAT standoff at a local motel.

Channel 2's Audrey Washington was live at the scene at the Motel 6 in Bremen on Channel 2 Action News This Morning as authorities placed one man into an ambulance and a woman, wearing only a T-shirt and underwear, in handcuffs.

According to authorities, they were trying to serve a warrant out of Clayton County. Police said it was the Clayton County Fugitive Team that actually tracked the man down to the motel.

They said he refused come out of his motel room for hours. In the end, the man and a woman surrendered.


Breman police told Washington that none of the officers were shot. The male suspect's condition is unknown at this time.

Washington spoke with motel guests who were awaken by the commotion.

“I woke up to loud noise. They were telling the guy to get out and get on the floor. The guy did not want to get out and I heard two gunshots,” said Josh Coleman.

After police cleared the scene, the motel guests were finally allowed to return to their rooms.
