BEMIDJI — A man was taken into custody Thursday evening after law enforcement used a gas irritant to force him out of a local residence. According to a release, at approximately 6:53 p.m. a female reported to the Bemidji Police Department that while at a residence in the 700 block of Ninth Street NW, her fiancee had been acting erratically and she allegedly heard him loading a shotgun. She also saw him barricading the doors to the residence.
