    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested a man after a SWAT standoff in east Charlotte Wednesday morning but need the public's help to track down a second suspect.

    Around 7 a.m. officers with the Violent Criminal Apprehension Team responded to an apartment at the 5500 block of Albemarle Road in an attempt to arrest 24-year-old Fitzroy Williams who they said was wanted for an outstanding felony probation violation for absconding.

    Police said Williams was also a suspect in an assault with a deadly weapon incident that took place last Sunday.

    When officers arrived, Williams barricaded himself inside the apartment. SWAT Team and negotiators were called to the scene and nearby residents were evacuated from their apartments as a precaution.

    After a brief standoff, Williams surrendered and was taken into custody without further incident.

    The VCAT needs the public's help in locating a second suspect involved in the ADW incident last Sunday.  Christopher A. Williams, 22, is wanted for Assault with a Deadly Weapon Intent to Kill Inflicting Serious Injury.

    If anyone has any knowledge of William's location or information that could lead to his arrest, please call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
