Authorities Confirm Body Found After Standoff is Daron Gaylor Jr. [Video]

Police confirmed Thursday that a body found after Wednesday’s standoff on Sherman Avenue in Flint was Daron Gaylor Jr. who was suspected in two recent murders. Gaylor Jr. was wanted in connection to the June 2nd murder of Ali McZick and the July 5th murder of Tyrell Gaylor.

According to ABC 12, the standoff began around 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday. The SWAT team used a battering ram and tear gas to try and get Gaylor to exit the house. They also played a message from Gaylor’s mother. When neither of those methods worked, police went into the home. At around 5 p.m. shots were fired into the home by SWAT team members after Gaylor had fired at police. An officer was hit and was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. At around 10 p.m. police used an excavator to tear apart the home in front of a large crowd that had gathered. Flint Police Chief James Tolbert said they used the “equipment to remove the roof so they could see inside.” Once they were able to get inside, police found Gaylor’s body in the attic.

ABC 12 also says that an arrest has been made in connection to the incident. Gaylor’s girlfriend has been arrested. Police said she was living at the house when the shootout happened.
