A 23-year-old Superior man was taken into custody for domestic abuse following a callout of the Superior Police Department Emergency Response Team.

The Emergency Response Team was called to 1214 Harrison St. at 10:30 a.m. Thursday to execute a search warrant for evidence gathering and a felony arrest warrant, according to a Superior Police Department news release.

Attempts were made by the Crisis Response Team to negotiate with the man to have him surrender and be taken into custody. When the man refused to give himself up, the Emergency Response Team made entry to the house.

Neighbors may have heard loud noises; this was the ERT deploying noise distraction devises, according to Superior Assistant Chief Matt Markon.

Dylan Morris, 23, was taken into custody and taken the St. Luke’s Hospital to be treated for self-inflicted injuries. When he is cleared medically, he will be lodged in the Douglas County Jail for domestic abuse charges of strangulation and battery, and bail jumping.
