Man at large, infant safe after SWAT standoff

The Gwinnett County man accused of triggering a Friday night SWAT standoff by barricading himself inside his residence with an infant remained at large Saturday, police said.

The child is safe, Gwinnett County police spokesman Cpl. Collin Flynn said.

According to Flynn, officers responded to the 200 block of Jarrod Oaks Court near Loganville about 8 p.m. Friday.

“A female complainant informed them that the father of her child, Keandre Davis … had barricaded himself inside of his residence with their infant child after a dispute,” Flynn said. “The complainant stated that Davis was armed with a firearm and had made threats to hurt himself and their child.”

Officers attempted to make contact with Davis, but to no avail, and the SWAT team was activated, Flynn said. Officers discovered that Davis had left the scene before they arrived.

Davis left the infant with a family friend, who returned to the scene with the child after the SWAT team responded, Flynn said. “The child was returned to its mother and was not harmed,” Flynn said.

Warrants have been issued charging Davis with simple battery and simple assault.

Anyone with information about Davis’ location is asked to contact police.
