NORCROSS -- More than two dozen law enforcement officers, including the FBI and a SWAT team, met at a Norcross apartment complex on Tuesday after a Detroit man barricaded himself inside an apartment.

The standoff took less than an hour during which a Norcross Police officer blocked a section of the Wood Chase Apartment Homes at 1136 Chase Commons Drive. Ngai Goode, 42, was arrested and taken into custody at about 3:15 p.m. after the SWAT team gained entry into the apartment, FBI spokesman Stephen Emmett said.

Norcross Police, the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office and the Gwinnett County Fire Department had personnel on scene.

The FBI in Atlanta and the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office arrested Goode based on a 2002 murder warrant obtained by investigators with the Wayne County Sheriff's Office in Michigan.

Goode was held at the Gwinnett jail on Tuesday awaiting extradition to Michigan.

It was not clear why he was in Norcross. FBI agents at the scene declined to comment, and a property manager referred questions to the parent company, the Lynd Company, which could not be reached.
