Gwinnett standoff ends in arrest
Police find woman’s body inside home
NORCROSS — A man’s standoff with a Gwinnett County police SWAT team ended Friday after nearly 12 hours, authorities said.
SWAT team members entered the home in Norcross where the Shannon Alan Marlowe had been holed up since about 10 p.m. Thursday, found the man in the attic and were able to talk him into surrendering, county police spokeswoman Cpl. Illana Spellman said.
Police had found a woman’s body in the home when officers answered the initial call Thursday night. The officers left the house and called in the SWAT team.
Now that the standoff has ended, Spellman says police will investigate how the woman died.
The relationship between the man and woman was not immediately clear. Police have not released the woman’s name.
No one was injured during the standoff.
