Standoff situation ends peacefully in Mesa

MESA, Ariz. -

A standoff in a neighborhood near 8th Street and Country Club Drive ended peacefully Tuesday morning.

Police say this all began Monday night after the suspect got into an argument and shot someone at a different location.  The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported to an area hospital.

Officers were able to track the suspect down to an apartment complex where he refused to give himself up.

Some of the apartment residents were evacuated to a safe location, while others were asked to stay inside for their safety.

The suspect left the apartment after a family member arrived at the scene, but Det. Steve Berry says the potential for trouble was really there.

"Just the potential for something to go wrong..either on his side or something that would cause the situation to escalate, there's always that potential for someone to get hurt and that's not what we're looking for.  We just simply want the suspect to come out..take him into custody and we'll let the legal system take its course."

Berry adds that the suspect and none of the officers were injured, "so that's the best resolution for all of us."

The suspect has been identified as 27-year-old Chadler S. Chow. He was booked into jail on two counts of aggravated assault.

The 8th Street and Country Club intersection was re-opened by 8 a.m.

    Heavily armed police officers descended on a home in Long Beach, Long Island, Tuesday afternoon thinking they might find a grisly murder scene. Instead they found a terrified woman who had no clue what they were talking about and her teenaged son playing video games. "We received a phone call from a gentleman who stated he had just shot his mother and his brother," Long Beach Police Commissioner Michael Tangney said. "Unfortunately, this is a terrible national problem for law enforcement."

    An NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
