A tactical situation ended peacfully this morning with the arrest of a homicide suspect, thanks to great work by the MPD Tactical Enforcement Unit and the department’s negotiators.
At about 2:40 a.m. today, officers from the Neighborhood Task Force approached a residence in the 4200 block of W. Roosevelt with information that a homicide suspect may be at that location.
Corey C. Long, 30. was wanted for the homicide of Eddie Taylor that occurred on Dec. 10, 2012 near 39th and Fond du Lac Ave. When officers approached the residence they observed Long outside and he retreated into the duplex. Contact was established with some of the occupants and those individuals exited the residence. Negotiators communicated with Long and he eventually surrendered. No one was injured in the incident.
MPD’s Tactical Enforcement Unit and the CIB Negotiators are the best at what they do – often asked to train other departments around the state and nation about the safest, most professional ways to resolve these incidents. We are proud of our special teams!
