Update: Standoff over in Elkhart, suspect in custody


The standoff at Washington Gardens Apartments in Elkhart is over.

Police say the suspect Delvon Tolbert is in custody.

This comes after police deployed gas into the apartment. Police say no shots were fired.

Police dispatch told us the whole incident started when officers were trying to serve a warrant and the man barricaded himself inside the apartment.

Police say Tolbert was possibly armed.

Although there was a warrant for him, police can't confirm if that was the reason they were called to the scene originally.

The housing authority tells FOX28 nobody was living next door.
