A standoff that lasted nearly eight hours in College Place yesterday resulted in no arrest.

The standoff started shortly after 1 p.m. when an off-duty police officer saw 32-year-old Ramon Zaragoza, a wanted felon, enter an apartment in the 300 block of Southeast 3rd Street.

When officers arrived, Zaragoza was standing in the front yard, but ran into an apartment after officers ordered him to their patrol car.

Police believed Zaragoza was armed.

The SWAT team was called in and after several hours, entered the apartment, but Zaragoza was not inside.

Police believe he may have gotten out through a crawl space in the attic.
