On Dec. 23 at 12:30AM, a visiting Virginia man reported that his intoxicated 33 year old brother was acting irrationally at the brother’s 2550 Wyndgate Ct. home in Westlake and had made reference to using firearms. Westlake PD officers responded to the home and extracted the VA man and his 27 year old sister (also of VA) without incident. The suspect Ramone BOYD’s 52yoa mother (also from VA) was too afraid to come out and locked herself in a bathroom. Residents of least two neighboring homes were evacuated also without incident.
The Westshore Enforcement Bureau Task Force (SWAT team) was activated and hostage negotiators employed to talk the mother out safely at 3:18AM. The SWAT Team made entry at 4:24AM and were met by BOYD, who gave himself up. He is under arrest for Domestic Violence (by threats, not by hitting someone, which is an M4) and is currently in the Westlake City Jail. BOYD never brandished any weapon, but the home was found in considerable disarray (broken dishware, overturned furniture, etc.).
A .22cal rifle was recovered in the home and a 9mm handgun from BOYD’s car. The last officer cleared the scene at 6:13AM.
