ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- A Friday afternoon standoff brought dozens of Anchorage police officers to Muldoon and cleared neighbors out of their homes.
It started with a 911 call from Antonio Dillon's girlfriend, who said Dillon had trapped her and her two children in a trailer.
"She was indicating she couldn't leave, her husband was suicidal and she couldn't get out," said APD Chief Mark Mew.
About 20 police units showed up, including the SWAT team. Police say the girlfriend and the kids were able to escape. But Dillon was still inside, possibly armed, and he wouldn't come out.
"He's standing in the doorway, he's talking with the negotiators, we're trying to resolve this without having to shoot anybody," Mew said.
