TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Toledo Police have arrested a 14-year-old suspect after a standoff at a west Toledo home.

Police were called to a home in the 800 block of Sibley around 3 p.m. Monday, April 28. A caller told police that one of her relatives was inside the home with a weapon, and may have been involved in the commission of a crime earlier in the day.

Police, EMS and a SWAT team were dispatched to the home. SWAT officers fired tear gas into the home before arresting a 14-year-old.

"It went very well as far as we're concerned, as far as the barricade situation. Any time that we can get the person to come out of the house and us not have to go in and confront the possible gunman, we consider that a victory. In this case the gas worked well," said Sergeant Joe Heffernan of the Toledo Police Department.

Police believe the home belongs to the suspect's grandmother.

TPD says the 14-year-old was one of two people involved in a robbery and assault earlier in the day. Police say the second suspect was not at the home.

Neighbors in the area say the heavy police and SWAT presence wasn't what scared them most.

"Knowing that these kids had guns, that there alone is enough to get you upset," said Glenn Killy.

Police say the boy could face charges in relation to the standoff for obstructing official business. They say he could also face charges if he is found to be connected to the robbery earlier that afternoon. It is still unclear how the teen got his hands on the gun.

    BYLINE: Victoria Idoni EAST TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - This is an all too familiar scene on the roads: people getting distracted behind the wheel. April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. One month out of the year is certainly not enough to observe safer driving habits. This is something we should always keep in mind. The good news is, there are ways in which our changing culture is evolving to deal with technology and how it can both hel...
