The tactical team surrounded the residence. Four people were outside of the house. Three were arrested immediately. One attempted to flee and was engaged by a police dog and apprehended. The remaining occupants of the residence surrendered peacefully. Eight people were taken into custody.

Investigators searching the residence located:
