Police have released the arrest photo of Ramon Dominguez, the man accused of robbing a local convenience store Saturday.
He was arrested early Monday morning after a brief standoff.
Police and SWAT members swarmed King Street near Old Colorado City as they closed in on the suspect, identified as Ramon Dominguez, 29.
Neighbors tell 11 News they woke up to the sound of flash bangs and the smell of tear gas as authorities persuaded Dominguez to surrender.
The robbery happened shortly before 12:30 a.m. Sunday at the Kum and Go located near I-25 and W. Fillmore St. in Colorado Springs.
Dominguez reportedly had a gun and demanded cash from the clerk.
The clerk told police as the suspect left, he thought he heard a shot. At the time police didn't find any evidence of the shot, but Monday morning they said Dominguez did accidentally fire the gun and injured himself.
Police dogs searched the area Saturday, but didn't find Dominguez. They did not specify what lead them to King Street Monday morning.
