NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — Newport News police took a homicide suspect into custody Tuesday night after a barricade situation at a motel along Jefferson Avenue Tuesday.

Dispatchers confirmed authorities were attempting to locate a fugitive at 12880 Jefferson Avenue in Newport News.

Newport News police said they were dispatched to the hotel around 3:30 p.m. for a report of a barricaded subject who they believed was armed.

Further investigation revealed the person had multiple outstanding warrants from James City County, including homicide.

As of 6:30 p.m., tactical teams were still on the scene. At 6:43 p.m., police tweeted that the subject had been taken into custody.
