A six hour standoff near a Nampa elementary school ended late Monday night with a suspect taken into custody.

Nampa Police were summoned to the area around Central Elementary School at 5:30 p.m. April 20. When law enforcement arrived on the scene, they learned that 26-year-old Carlos Reyna of Nampa had barricaded himself in a home on 16th Avenue South. Police said they had reason to believe that Reyna was armed with a shotgun.

Police later confirmed that a woman said Reyna had robbed her on the sidewalk just before 5:30 p.m.

This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that just before midnight, the Nampa SWAT Team was able to take Reyna into custody. Reyna faces a string of charges including aggravated assault, strong arm robbery and outstanding warrants for domestic battery and drug charges.
