Hours-long stand off ends peacefully with suspect in custody

Demarcus McCall Jr - BCPD

A four hour long stand off with an armed individual ended peacefully early Monday morning due to the efforts of both the Bossier City Police and Fire Departments. 

At approximately 2:00 a.m. on December 12, 2022, BCPD dispatch received a call from a concerned resident at an apartment complex located in the 2600 block of Village Lane. 

The caller stated that a black male, identified as 23-year-old Demarcus McCall, Jr., was armed with an assault rifle outside an apartment building and had fired at least one shot. 

Due to the nature of the situation, both BCPD and BCFD responded to the scene and set up a command post. Nearby residents were notified of the danger and some of the apartments were evacuated. Specialized equipment including the armored BearCat police vehicle as well as the MedCat, an armored fire rescue vehicle, were dispatched to the scene.

As officers attempted to approach, the man fired multiple rounds, subsequently barricading himself inside his apartment. 

After several hours of negotiation, the suspect surrendered peacefully at approximately 6:00 a.m. and was taken into custody. Charges are currently pending. 

No one was injured, and the incident remains under investigation.
