Members of the Norman SWAT team arrive on scene of a barricaded suspect , Thursday, Aug. 22, 2019, at 17200 Sunnylane Road, north of Indian Hills Road, in the Sunnylane Estates Mobile Home Park.

A four-hour standoff Thursday ended after a man who barricaded himself inside his mobile home surrendered.

Justin Sammuel Tucker, 30, was arrested at 17200 Sunnylane Road in connection with assault and battery, pointing firearms and carrying firearms after conviction. Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office deputies went to the mobile home park after receiving a 911 call around 9 a.m.

According to a 911 call released by sheriff’s office, an individual called after they said they witnessed Tucker in the front yard of a residence point a gun at his wife and tell her he would “shoot her in the face.” There were children in the yard, the caller said, but they ran away after seeing Tucker take a woman inside of the home.

A sheriff’s office spokesperson said Tucker initially took his family inside the home, but he let them leave after deputies arrived.

Norman Police Department’s SWAT team was called to the scene as law enforcement continued to try and get Tucker outside of the home.

Tucker has a former felony conviction from Texas. He eventually surrendered and SWAT was not used, according to a sheriff's office statement. No one was injured at the scene.
