Officers asked nearby neighbors about the shooting, learning where the suspect lived. Steve Bostain, 53, refused to talk with officers about the incident and ordered them away from the property.
Officer Jim Tucker said he saw small caliber gun casings leading from the front door towards the street. Pine Bluff SWAT Team was called in with department negotiators. A negotiator talked to Bostain for over three hours but was unsuccessful.
Several cans of gas were thrown into the house in attempts to force the suspect out. SWAT officers eventually entered the home and arrested the suspect with no reported injuries.
Bostain was taken to a hospital for treatment of CS gas exposure.
