BAPD: Standoff suspect arrested

BROKEN ARROW - A standoff in Broken Arrow ends peacefully after nearly four hours at a home on South Hickory Place.

It started when Broken Arrow Police special operations team tried to serve a warrant to 27-year-old Shawn Williams, but Williams would not come out.

Police said a significant other and two small children were also in the home with him.

Contrary to what officers thought at the beginning, there was never a hostage situation.

The woman and two children got out of the house and no weapon was found.

There was another person, 33-year-old Trenton Posey, that was in the home willingly.

A little after 2 p.m., both men came out of the home peacefully after negotiating with law enforcement.


It’s a really unusual scene for this very quiet neighborhood because it's mostly made up of retired residents, but one neighbor said he didn’t mind the swarm of police presence.

“It’s good to know we got this availability if something does go down," neighbor David Riley said. "I talked to the first cop, and he seemed like he was suiting up and like something was going on. So, it’s good to see a good response to it.”

Williams now has to take care of his local warrants before being extradited to Colorado. Posey was arrested on a charge of obstruction of justice.
