MINDEN, La. (KSLA) - According to Louisiana State Police Troop G PIO Jonathan Odom, a man was barricaded in a home behind the Brookshire’s store on Highway 79 earlier this afternoon.

Law enforcement officials say the suspect, David Baker, is now in custody. He was hit with a non-lethal sponge round.

Police say Baker reportedly made threats over the phone to another man. The threatened man called police about the situation and officers responded to the suspect’s home.

Webster Parish Sheriff Jason Parker says as officers arrived, Baker brandished a knife when they attempted to speak with him. He later came out of his house with another weapon.

Parker says Louisiana State Police are in charge of the investigation. However, Minden Police Department, Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office, LSP, Bossier City Police Department and Bossier Sheriff’s Office assisted on the scene.
