Shreveport Police say a SWAT team has safely removed a man from a home he barricaded himself in Thursday morning.

Police say the suspect is 27-year-old Aaron Chrisman. He was wanted by police on a charge of convicted felon in possession of a firearm. DeSoto Parish also had a warrant out for his arrest

It all began about 9 a.m. Thursday at a home in the 200 block of E. Elmwood St., when police came to the home to serve the warrant.

Instead, authorities say Chrisman wouldn't come out of the house, instead barricading himself inside the bathroom. Police say they weren't sure if Chrisman had access to any weapons. That's when the SWAT team was called in.

A short time after SWAT's arrival, they tossed a flash grenade inside the home to create a distraction, then sent in a K-9.

Police eventually got Chrisman out of the house. He was treated at the scene by paramedics for a dog bite, then taken to University Health for treatment.

Additional charges are expected for resisting arrest.
