After nearly eight hours, SWAT officers began searching the four apartments in the duplex. Authorities said Gatson was using the attic to move through the apartments and evading officers.
Police sent in a robot and even used a smoke grenade in an attempt to get Gatson out.
Following the incident, crisis negotiator Darry Whitaker said he and his partner, Capt. Robert Ramirez tried using Gatson's mother and sister to encourage him to turn himself in peacefully.
Kelly said Friday that Gatson's family pleaded with him to surrender, but he would not listen to reason.
Gatson reportedly told crisis negotiators he had a gun and would shoot the officers if they came inside. He also said the officers would have to shoot and kill him if he came outside.
Kelly said the officers had to take off their body camera's in order to crawl around in the attic and find Gatson.
An officer found Gatson hiding in a closet after coming down from the attic. Kelly said Gatson, who had a long rifle with a scope and a magazine, told the officer he had a gun.
"Right now no footage of shooting ... still sifting through," Kelly said.
