VANCOUVER, Wash. -- Police used tear gas to capture a man barricaded inside a townhouse in Vancouver Saturday, after a domestic dispute.

The suspect had violated a restraining order and there was also a felony warrant out on his arrest, according to the Vancouver Police Department.

A SWAT team assisted officers at the scene.  When the suspect refused to come out of the townhouse, located at 1800 Bryant Street, they fired tear gas inside to force him out.

He was arrested a short time later.

No injuries were reported and the suspect's name has not yet been released.
