Barricade situation ends peacefully in Phoenix

PHOENIX -- A man is in custody following the peaceful end of a nearly eight-hour barricade situation in Phoenix.

Police say 39-year-old Wednesday Peralta-Martinez was booked into jail early Friday on suspicion of aggravated assault, aggravated assault on a police officer and criminal damage.

The incident began about 9:30 p.m. Thursday when police responded to domestic violence call.

A woman told police she was being chased by her ex-boyfriend through the courtyard of the apartment complex and had pointed a gun at her.

Police say Wednesday didn't live at the complex and hid in one of the apartments.

That started a barricade situation that ended about 5 a.m. Friday after hours on negotiations.

Police say walls were damaged inside the apartment and Wednesday apparently was armed only with a pistol pellet gun.
