David Arnando Keefe, 23, has been arrested after barricading himself in an apartment on Wednesday in Dalton.

The Dalton Police Department responded to the scene of a barricaded subject with a gun at 1004 Richards Street, Apartment 2.

The call began as a domestic incident this morning shortly before 8 a.m. Early indications were that Keefe, was involved in a fight with his girlfriend and fired a shot during the fight. The victim was unharmed and escaped to a neighbor’s home and called 911.

At approximately 12:10 p.m., SWAT team members from the Georgia State Patrol moved an armored vehicle into position in front of the apartment at 1004 Richards Street, #2 and fired tear gas rounds into the apartment.

Eventually, Keefe came out of the front door with his hands up and surrendered. He was evaluated by EMS and arrested by Dalton officers.

He is charged with aggravated assault, false imprisonment, and cruelty to children in the first degree for committing domestic violence in the presence of the victim’s children. Further charges are possible.

Dalton detectives are remaining on scene to execute a search warrant to process the crime scene after it airs out more.
