Police arrest man
in apartment siege
By THOMAS O'CONNELL
Ann Arbor police officers ended a tense siege yesterday
afternoon when they used tear gas to flush an armed man from an
apartment on the southeast side of town.
Andra Bishop, 29, held police at bay for over four hours with a
loaded pistol. The confrontation followed a series of domestic
disputes between Bishop and his wife.
POLICE WERE called in last Friday to settle an argument at
the Bishop residence in the Colonial Square apartments on
Williamsburg Rd. When Bishop's wife decided to remove her
belongings and move out yesterday morning, Bishop became
hostile and she phoned the police for assistance.
When Ann Arbor officers arrived around 10:30 a.m. Ms. Bishop
was standing outside the small, two-story building. Police entered
the apartment to talk with Bishop, but retreated when he confron-
ted them with a pistol.
Backup units were called in and the building was soon surroun-
ded by armed officers, who closed off nearby streets. A long wait Daily Photo by JOHN KNOX
