JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A SWAT team was outside a unit at Victory Pointe Apartments on Ramona Boulevard Tuesday, just off Interstate 10, where a man with a gun was threatening suicide.

Adrian D. Weaver, 30, was arrested following the standoff by Jacksonville Sheriff's Officers around 7:30 p.m. without incident, officials said.  

According to JSO, the call came in at 3:02 p.m. after the mother of Weaver's child, Gwendoria Williams, reported Weaver's threat and saw him with a gun. Weaver was alone, locked in the bathroom of Williams' apartment.

Williams told officers Weaver always carries a handgun with him and "sticks it in his pant," officials said. Williams described Weavers gun as looking just like a police officer's gun, only smaller, according to JSO.  

"He is a dangerous individual. He is a convicted felon," Lt. Mike Eason said, adding he also has incidents of prior incidents of violence against police.

According to records, Weaver was found guilty of battery on a law enforcement officer in February of 2012 and was registered as a felon in Duval County in March of 2014.

The incident took place in the back of the complex and access to most of the apartments was no restricted.
