COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - The Columbia Police Department and the Richland County Sheriff’s Department were negotiating with a man who officials say was armed on Fort Jackson Blvd.

Marquise Green has been identified as the suspect from the incident, according to the Columbia Police Department.

CPD says Green has been charged with pointing and presenting a firearm at a person, and breach of trust with fraudulent intent after he was accused of threatening a man with a gun during an argument over money.

According to CPD, the man refused to come out of Fort Jackson Village Apartments. After negotiations with the Columbia Police Department, SWAT members were able to enter the apartment and the man surrendered.

Officers checked for potential weapons, and none were found on his person.

“In law enforcement, no day is the same and we take all of the precautions necessary to preserve life and that’s part of our response today,” Deputy Chief Melron Kelly said.

Tenants near the affected area were accounted for, according to CPD, and were been asked to temporarily stay away from the area.

Crisis negotiators arrived to the scene, and helped officers talk to the male suspect.
