Man found dead in Lakewood; suspect arrested after SWAT standoff

Neither has been identified at this time.

LAKEWOOD, Ohio — Police say a suspect is in custody after a man was found dead in Lakewood late Wednesday night.

Officers say they performed a welfare check on the residents of a home on the 14600 block of Clifton Road when they found the victim lying dead out side. The male suspect was apparently barricaded inside the home and refused to come out, prompting authorities to call in the Westshore Enforcement Bureau SWAT team.

The standoff continued into early Thursday morning, but the suspect ended up being arrested just before 5 a.m. Neither he nor the victim has been identified at this time.

This incident is still under investigation. Details are developing.
