On August 15, a 911 hang-up call from a residence located on Poplar Springs Road in Alexander County was made at 2 a.m. Since the call’s nature was not able to be determined, officers were dispatched to the home for a well-being check. On arrival, officers met someone who claimed their roommate barricaded himself in the location and was suffering from a possible mental illness.

After numerous unsuccessful attempts to draw the person out didn’t work, more off-duty personnel responded to the scene. Warren was soon taken from the bedroom by force and into custody.

Alexander County Sheriff Chris Bowman said members of the Taylorsville Police Department also responded to the scene to provide assistance.
