Rader attempted to flee the scene but was halted by officers, at which time he fled back into the building and refused to come outside. Rader would not speak with officers and the SWAT team was called in to assist. When Rader attempted to flee the scene again, SWAT used chemical agents (pepper balls) to prevent Raders escape. Approximately 2.5 hours later, officers took Rader safely into custody. During the incident, some residents around the businesses were evacuated.

Before this incident, Rader had been arrested in Fort Collins on Sept. 7 for a Burglary occurring in August. He was booked into Larimer County Jail and posted bond on September 9th. He is awaiting court for those charges.
