Standoff in Richland Neighborhood Ends Peacefully

Arrested:  Foreman, Derek D.; 35 year of age male, Richland residentCharge:  Department of Corrections Felony Hold

Synopsis: On January 17, 2014 at approximately 11:00 PM Richland officers responded to the 700 block of Wright St. on a call of a disturbance involving a firearm.  The reporting party stated that a male, identified as Foreman, had arrived at the residence with a firearm and was threatening to shoot a female who was hiding inside the duplex.

Foreman, a convicted felon, is prohibited from possessing firearms. In addition, there was a felony hold on him issued by the Department of Corrections.  Three adults and two children (ages 3 and 5) were in the residence when officers arrived.  There were multiple attempts to contact the people inside but there was no response to repeated hails.After about an hour, a 39 year old female ran from the front door.  She had been the one Foreman was threatening to kill.  The female advised that she had not seen Foreman holding a gun but had been told by the other residents inside that he had one.  She said that he had released her feeling that the police would then leave. The female told the officers present that the other subjects inside the home were being held against their will.

Members of the Tri-City Regional SWAT Team arrived to assist.  After continuing negotiations the people inside the residence began to exit.  All of the people inside were able to leave safely. The children, whose father is a tenant in the home, were returned to the custody of their mother.  The streets in the neighborhood were returned to normal operating status at about 3:30 AM.Foreman was arrested on the DOC hold and taken to the Benton County jail.  Additional charges are being reviewed by the Benton County Prosecutor's Office.  The investigation is continuing.
