"This is the Navajo Nation Police Department," shouted a police officer through a megaphone. "You’re considered armed and dangerous."
"Obey all commands," added the officer. "Exit the door using the front door!"
Navajo Nation Police Sgt. Terry John said he has no names of the four suspects, who reportedly are connected to an incident that took place in St. Michaels, Ariz., before tribal police and SWAT were at the doors of House No. 10 in the St. Michael’s subdivision, about a mile northeast of St. Michaels, Ariz.
"All I know is that an incident happened in St. Michael’s," John said, adding, "From this incident, the suspects came to this house."
There was no homicide, according to John. The sergeant and the rest of the police force on scene are still debriefing the case. Details are to follow.
