SWAT Team Ends Standoff in Cleveland

The Cleveland SWAT was called to help end a standoff at a home on 10720 Parkhurst on Wednesday afternoon.
According to police officials, a man barricaded himself into the house with a hammer and was tearing the place up. The suspect proceeded to set the 2nd floor of the house on fire and exited out through a window, where he was caught by SWAT members.
Cleveland Fire Department crews were able to put out the fire. One of the firefighters has suffered lacerations to the hand and has been taken to MetroHealth Medical Center. The suspect, who apparently suffers from mental problems, was taken to a local hospital as well.
