VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — The Virginia Beach Police Department arrested a Virginia Beach man after a barricade situation unfolded on Ship Chandlers Wharf on Sept. 21.

A tweet from police said it was a domestic-related problem.

In a Sept. 27 update to the case, a police spokesperson said the first calls for help said a man had shot a gun outside a home on that street.

When officers got to the scene, they allegedly saw a man and woman physically fighting near the front door. The woman was able to step away before the man went back into the house.

The police department tweeted they'd taken a suspect into custody "without incident" before 4 p.m. on Tuesday.

Police later said that suspect was 22-year-old Jonathan Carlos Contreras.

He was taken to the Virginia Beach City Jail and is facing charges of use of a firearm in commission of a felony, domestic assault and breaking and entering with the intent to commit a felony.
