CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A man accused of attempted murder of police officers is in custody following a SWAT standoff Tuesday in Westwood.
Jacob Julick, 27, is now in the custody of U.S. Marshals after the hours-long standoff in the 3100 block of McHenry Avenue involving U.S. Marshals, Cincinnati Police, SWAT and other specialized units, according to CPD.
He was found in the attic of a three-story building, according to police. They say he was arrested without struggle.
“He was a great threat to the public ... Obviously, he didn’t think twice about shooting police officers in Northern Kentucky,” Cincinnati Police Lt. Steve Saunders said. “We’re glad he’s off the streets, we’re glad he’s into custody.”
Julick is accused of firing at Lakeside Park police officers on June 6 when he fled from a traffic stop on Dixie Highway in Erlanger, Kentucky.
Jacob Julick’s mother Mary told FOX19 that during the standoff, her son called her and said he was surrounded by police and “didn’t know what to do.”
Police say they spotted Julick over the weekend in Campbell County. They chased Julick from downtown Covington but his erratic driving forced them to call off the pursuit in Latonia.
The Kenton County commonwealth attorney has said Julick will face a long list of criminal charges included the attempted murder of police officers once he is in custody.
