Police: North side standoff ends with suspect in custody, no injuries
MADISON, Wis. — A 35-year-old man is facing multiple charges after a standoff on Madison’s north side Friday night, police said.
Antonio A. Rollins, who police had described as an armed fugitive, surrendered to police around 9:50 p.m.
Police said Saturday that Rollins is facing charges of felon in possession of a firearm, possession of stolen firearm, second-degree recklessly endangering safety, eluding and substantial battery.
A woman and two children under 5 years old, who were in the residence at the time of the incident, were not injured, police said.
Police Chief Mike Koval told News 3 Rollins barricaded himself inside a residence on the 3600 block of Kipling Drive around 2:30 p.m.
At the time, Koval said the incident “may be construed as a hostage situation.”
A reverse 911 call was sent out to neighbors telling them to stay sheltered until the incident was resolved, the release said.
Police had several streets in the area closed due to the incident.
