SWAT Member Commends Patrol Officers For Handling Of FDL Standoff

A member of the Fond du Lac Police Department’s SWAT Team commends patrol officers for their handling of a standoff call on East 11th Street late Thursday night. A 43-year-old Fond du Lac man who was drunk and suicidal fired off six rounds from a gun in the home. No one hurt and he eventually surrendered to officers. Officer Erik Foster says their patrol officers are the first ones on the scene and over the years have received more training to handle those types of situations. The man was arrested and taken to the County Jail.
