03/06/19 Aurora, CO – A man who police say was armed and was wanted on felony warrants barricaded himself in a house located in the 900 block of S. Ouray Street for the entire day today. The incident took place near the intersection of E. Kentucky Ave. and S. Buckley Road. Neighbors state that the police descended on the house around 9AM this morning. Aurora Police pulled out all of the tactical stops on this one leaving nothing to chance. A large mobile command vehicle was parked at the scene. An armored police tactical vehicle could be seen in front of the house in which the suspect was barricaded. This reporter noted dozens of cops of every type scurrying around the house in question. Aurora Fire Rescue had a large presence on the scene as well with several fire trucks, ambulances and supervisors staged in close proximity to the suspect house. I also noticed where a vehicle had driven into a wooden fence bordering the house on the Buckley Road side of the residence. Neighbors were amazed at the extremely heavy police turn out. One neighbor told me he heard “popping sounds” and saw smoke coming from the house at one point. Police tell us that was likely tear gas being introduced to the house. Area residents were instructed in an APD Tweet to “shelter in place” for the majority of the day.
Around 5PM police escorted a man out of the house in obvious custody. That suspect, who Aurora police identify as 32 year old Travis John Fancher was walked to a crowd of officers and was then garbed in a white paper smock and paper booties. Fancher was then escorted to an awaiting police car and taken to jail. Aurora Police stated in another Tweet after the arrest that Fancher was arrested on warrants for “dangerous drugs and vehicular eluding”. They further stated that he would face additional charges in regards to today’s standoff. No injuries occurred to the Public or officers during today’s ordeal. Hats off to APD and AFD for bringing this situation to a safe conclusion today. Shane Anthony reporting for ColoradoNews1.com
