UPDATE: 7:45 p.m., Wednesday, August 12, 2020 - At around 7 p.m., an hours-long incident came to a close in South Redding with one man been taken to the hospital.

Redding Police say the call came in around 1:40 p.m. on Aug. 12 alerting them to a man making threats in a residence on Bramble Place.

Lieutenant Jeff Wallace spoke with Action News Now and says the man was making threats about burning down the building, as well as threats against his own life.

Because of the threats the man was making, Lt. Wallace says officers spent hours negotiating with the suspect to try and get him to come out peacefully.

Officials had learned the suspect had allegedly injured himself, so Lt. Wallace says to avoid a negative confrontation and possible officer-involved shooting, police chose to relax their stance.

Friends of the man went in to check on the suspect and found he did have injuries to his arm. Lt. Wallace says the man was then transported to the hospital.

The lieutenant said they believe the man was calling a significant other about the threats and believed he was under the influence. Wallace also said it is believed to be a situation of drug abuse and mental health.

Officials do believe the suspect was the only person in the home. Officials say officers will be out for several more hours in the area.

Several apartment complexes were also evacuated as a precaution.

The name of the man is not being released at this time.
