Shortly before 2 p.m., the currently unnamed assailant began banging on the ceiling of his apartment at the Oak Creek Villas complex on McCoy Lane. Elise Shems, the mother of a one-year-old son and a three-year-old daughter, went downstairs to confront her neighbor.

Elise Shems’s husband intervened and she headed back upstairs. Shortly afterwards, her husband ran back upstairs bleeding from a gun shot wound to his hand.

After a short standoff, officers arrested the suspect.
