NORTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - A man is now in custody after police say he barricaded himself inside a metro Atlanta hotel room.
Roswell police and SWAT teams were called to the Ramada Inn off Mansell Road around 2 p.m. Wednesday.
Police tell Channel 2's Justin Wilfon the man caused a disturbance in the lobby before he went back to his room.
Officers went into the room shortly after 5 p.m. and used a Taser on the suspect. Police say the man threatened to shoot officers, but they did not find a gun.
Roswell police tell me the suspect in this standoff stopped responding to police after barricading himself in his room. So, minutes ago they went into the room, tased him, and took him into custody. @wsbtv pic.twitter.com/RsFjnsVel9— Justin Wilfon (@JustinWilfonWSB) June 5, 2019
NewsChopper 2 flew over the hotel, which was locked off by police tape, and captured the moment police put him in the back of a patrol car.
