COLUMBIA - Police identified the suspect in Wednesday night's standoff as Rockus Roland, 27, from Columbia.

The standoff happened at Columbia Square Apartments on Claudell Lane.

According to the Columbia Police Department, the Street Crimes Unit was looking for Roland, who had a no-bond felony warrant.

"They saw the wanted person go into a residence in Claudell Lane and then tried to make contact and he is refusing to come out at this time. Officers are using a bullhorn to try to call him out of the residence, and hopefully we'll have that happen soon," CPD Public Information Officer Latisha Stroer said.

CPD officers escorted children away from a nearby building at one point. Roland was arrested without incident shortly before midnight.
