Brighton police clear 'active scene'

Domestic violence suspect at large

Posted
The Brighton Police Department was called to the Riverwalk Apartments in the 700 block of Mockingbird Street early in the morning May 4 in regards to a possible suspect at large regarding a domestic violence incident. Police officers and SWAT teams surrounded the apartment complex with guns drawn.
“Based on the circumstances and the information, we were able to garner, we initially called out our SWAT team to assist our patrol division in securing the scene and preventing any additional danger to the residents,” said Brighton Police Department Cmdr. Matthew Domenico.
Domenico said officers received tips from different mobile phones about a possible hostage situation, but as the detectives continued to investigate it was inaccurate.
“No one was inside the home, and we made contact with the resident. They are aware of what's going on,” said Domenico. "I don't believe the resident was a friend or the suspect lived at the address. I can't say anything additional about the reason. We've got some investigative work to figure out all the circumstances behind it."
No arrest was made. The investigation is ongoing. There is no active threat to the community, and police said the area has been cleared and residents are safe to return home.
“There is the still a suspect at large we're looking for. We're not prepared to release any names or any information at this point. But we do not believe those threat represent the communities,” said Domenico.
