UPDATE: 9:30 a.m.: Mobile Police escorted Clarence White from Police headquarters to a squad car Monday morning. They were taking him to Mobile County Metro Jail.
He was wearing a mesh spit mask over his entire head. White wouldn’t answer questions from reporters as he muttered swear words, saying, “Someone is going to pay for this.”
Police say he was taken into custody after the standoff, without incident, when SWAT negotiators convinced him to come out of the home unarmed.
Police say he’s charged with attempted murder, charged as a person forbidden from carrying a handgun, and outstanding warrants. There are three listed related to domestic violence charges.
UPDATE: 4:43 a.m.: A Mobile Police spokesperson says the suspect is 43-year-old Clarence White and he will be charged with attempted murder and possibly other charges pending the outcome of their investigation. A spokesperson says police were responding to this neighborhood at about 1:10 this morning. White was known to officers in previous domestic violence cases and had several outstanding warrants.
A spokesperson says he was located at a home on Randolph Street, threatened officers, and fired shots from a window. The SWAT team was called him and he voluntarily came out of the home after a standoff and was taken into custody. No one was hurt.
