FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A SWAT team called to a home in Fort Lauderdale late Sunday night after two roommates got into an argument, police say.

They say the suspect pulled out a gun and threatened to shoot the victim in the head.

The victim was able to get out of the home and call police.

The suspect, 46-year-old Charles Roberts, remained inside the home, which is why the SWAT team was called.
