The FWPD Crisis Response Team and Emergency Services Team arrived at the complex around 3 a.m. after officers learned the man inside had an assault-type weapon.
Shortly after 6 a.m., officers placed an explosive charge on the door and entered the apartment. Salter was then arrested on outstanding felony warrant for armed robbery. Additional charges for that incident, and others for his attempted escape, are pending.
