Grand Rapids police called it a "critical incident" in the late afternoon near 4th and Stocking on the northwest side.

A woman called police to say her boyfriend was armed with a rifle threatened to kill himself and anybody who tried to stop him.

Cops surrounded the house, but the 33-year-old man already had left. They picked him up a couple miles away, in the area of Brown and South Division, SE, and say he is being evaluated.
