Tulsa police were engaged in a standoff near the 2600 block of North Quaker with suspect, Gregory Riley, after the suspect's wife flagged down an officer in the area.

According to police, the suspect started fighting with his wife and another person in their home. The victims suffered significant cuts and abrasions from the attack; they told officers the suspect may have a gun, police say.

Sgt. Patrick Stephens and several officers quickly arrived at the house and confirmed that the suspect was still inside. Several unsuccessful attempts were made to talk to Riley on the phone.

After Riley refused to talk on the phone or come out, Pepperball rounds were deployed through a window, according to police.

The suspect was compelled to leave the house as a result.

Riley is in custody and will be booked on two felony counts of domestic violence with a dangerous weapon.
