A man is now in custody after barricading himself inside a home in Pueblo West for a few hours Saturday morning.
The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office says 31-year-old Nicholas Bouzos assaulted his sister and began firing a gun inside a home early Saturday morning. The woman left the house and was seen by an off-duty deputy walking near Spaulding and South McCulloch. The deputy stopped to help the woman, who revealed that Bouzos was still inside the home. Bouzos' sister was uninjured.
A SWAT team was deployed to the home on the 500 block of South McCulloch Boulevard at 6 a.m. All residents on that street, as well as the 1600 block of El Charro, were asked to stay indoors as a safety precaution.
At 9:30 a.m. Bouzos came out of the home peacefully and was arrested. He has been booked into the Pueblo County Jail on felony charges of menacing with a deadly weapon and illegal discharge of a weapon, and a misdemeanor charge of third-degree assault.
