SWAT STANDOFF ENDS PEACEFULLY IN KENNER

 Kenner - On Wednesday, December 16, 2015, at 09:15 a.m., the Kenner Police Department was involved in a SWAT standoff with suspect, Daniel Cook, 34, of 3216 Northwestern Drive, in Kenner.  Cook was wanted for the crimes of aggravated second degree battery, stalking, theft of a firearm, and felony carrying of weapons by a person convicted of certain felonies, concerning a shooting that occurred in Kenner on Friday, in which Cook shot a 37 year old Hispanic male in the head.  The victim was transported to University Hospital where it was determined that the victim had two entry wounds from a small caliber projectile. 

 

 On Wednesday, members of the Kenner Police Department and U.S. Marshal’s Gulf Coast Regional Task Force encountered Cook outside him home in Kenner.  At that time, Cook placed his hand in his jacket and implied he was armed as he retreated inside his residence.  Once barricading himself inside the residence, Cook indicated he was armed with an assault rifle with a 30 round magazine and threatened to harm officers if they entered.  The Kenner Police SWAT team deployed gas into the residence in an effort to have Cook surrender.  When those measures failed, the Kenner Police Department utilized a JPSO SWAT robot to enter the residence, at which time Cook surrendered without further incident. 

 

 Cook was transported to the Kenner Police Department, where he was booked with the above listed crimes, in addition to other warrants that were also outstanding at the time of the shooting for unauthorized entry into an inhabited dwelling, and attachments for resisting an officer, battery on a police officer, simple assault, and disturbing the peace. 

 

 Cook is also charged with assault and resisting an officer concerning the SWAT standoff.   At the time of this press release, Cook remains in custody, no bond has been set.     

 

 Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser encourages anyone with information concerning this incident, the Friday shooting, or Daniel Cook to contact Kenner Police Detective Brad Ricke at (504) 712-2214.
