Deputies rushed to the scene and found Lucia barricaded inside the home. Two other adults were able to leave the home. Deputies were told that Lucia may be armed, and the All Hazards/Crises Response [AH/CR] Team showed up with negotiators to try to resolve the situation.

Lucia was arrested, but not before assaulting several deputies and a K9, inflicting minor injuries. At 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday, another alert was sent out saying the situation had been resolved.
