SALEM — Police arrested Joseph Haynes, 30, after he and a woman barricaded themselves at the Park View Inn at 109 S. Broadway Sunday morning, according to police.
The Southern New Hampshire Special Operations Unit was mobilized after an officer located a stolen vehicle from Florida in the parking lot at 9:47 a.m., and after several attempts to have Haynes leave the room they were in failed, police said in a news release.
Police said Haynes had a warrant for his arrest from Broward County, Fla., and is a person of interest in a shooting that took place on Interstate 495 Wednesday night in Haverhill, Mass. A witness told state police that a person in a southbound car fired at another vehicle; no injuries were reported.
The same vehicle was involved in a “lengthy and dangerous” high-speed chase earlier this month, according to police. Haynes’ last known address was in Tewksbury, Mass.
During their investigation, police obtained a photo of Haynes and confirmed that he was a guest at the Park View Inn. After officers made contact with the occupant of the room, he failed to identify himself.
Several officers were able to observe Haynes and confirm his identity.
Officers were initially told Haynes was in the room with a woman and possibly small children. They later learned there were no children present, the news release said.
Crisis negotiators with the regional SWAT unit spoke with Haynes for several hours until Haynes was taken into custody without further incident.
Haynes will be processed on a fugitive from justice charge, according to police. The woman who was with him was not identified.
Haverhill, Mass., police helped with the investigation.
