Police then went to the location and found a black male lying on a couch. Officers immediately called for backup to block the house’s exits. The suspect attempted to escape, however, realising that he was surrounded, locked himself inside a room. The suspect, later identified as Mr Roberts, had a brief standoff with officers, but soon after surrendered without incident, according to Mr Dratte.
Mr Roberts, 20, was wanted for the January 31, 2017, murder of McDonald Samuel in Lorraine Village, according to Mr Dratte. Another man was also injured during the same incident. Mr Roberts was charged with first-degree murder, and was remanded to the Golden Grove Detention Center pending his advisement hearing.
