Additional officers were called to the scene to surround the house, and attempts were made to reach the suspect by telephone at the home.  After approximately one hour, the suspect, a male juvenile, emerged from the residence and was taken into custody without incident.  Chief Collins said that the residence has now been been secured and that the police department is in the process of applying for a search warrant.
