Norfolk barricade situation ends peacefully; man taken into custody

Norfolk Police, K-9s, and the bomb squad were at the scene in the 600 block of E. Ingram Court. That's on the Lincoln Military Housing near the Navy base.

NORFOLK, Va. — Norfolk Police say an early morning standoff has ended peacefully.

At about 2:40 a.m. Tuesday, police responded to a domestic call in the 300 block of E. Ingram Court, which is on the Lincoln Military Housing near the Navy base.

Arriving officers were unable to make contact with the person inside the home, which led to them calling in the Hostage/Crisis Negotiation Team and Special Operations Team.

Eventually, police were able to take 21-year-old Joseph E. A. Gustafson III into custody. Nobody was hurt during the incident.

Police say Gustafson III is charged with domestic assault and strangulation. He is currently being held in the Norfolk City Jail without bond.
