|Prison Escapee Arrested After Adams County Standoff|
A 28-year-old Englewood, Colo., man faces numerous charges after a tense standoff in Adams County Thursday.
Sheriff's deputies said Shad Haliw parked his vehicle in the RTD Park-n-Ride at 70th Avenue and Broadway at 10:30 a.m. He called Adams County dispatch to say he had a handgun and would harm himself.
When deputies arrived, they called in negotiators who tried to talk Haliw out of his vehicle.
Several schools in the area were locked down as a precaution.
About 45 minutes after the standoff began, Haliw put the handgun down and got out of his vehicle, where he was taken into custody.
The bomb squad was called after a suspicious device was found in his vehicle, but it was later determined not to be a bomb.
He is being held for investigation of possession of a controlled substance and possession of a weapon by a previous offender. He is also being held on a Colorado Department of Corrections warrant for escape and second unspecified arrest warrant from Westminster, Colo.
