Sandy Springs SWAT situation ends peacefully

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- No one was hurt in an hours-long SWAT standoff in Sandy Springs overnight.

The situation began at around 10 p.m. Wednesday when the suspect's mother called police to report that her son, Edward Quenzer, was acting erratic.

After the mother called police, Quenzer threatened her with a Taser-type stun gun, according to Sandy Springs Police spokesman Ron Momon.

North Metro SWAT and Sandy Springs Police officials responded to Quenzer's house on Old Woodbine Road and tried to negotiate with him.

Early Thursday morning, a SWAT team was able to get into the house and take Quenzer into custody without incident, Momon said. Quenzer will now undergo a mental evaluation at Grady Memorial Hospital; the suspect's mother said he has been displaying symptoms of paranoia and schizophrenia.

Police evacuated several of Quenzer's neighbors during the SWAT standoff, but no one was harmed.
