SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Police made an early morning arrest after a domestic dispute.

They told CBS 3 that 39-year-old Israel Lopez had assaulted his girlfriend, then returned to the scene at Morgan Street Apartments a short time later with what appeared to be a shotgun.

Police said Lopez barricaded himself in the dwelling and they had to set up a perimeter.

Lopez eventually fled and was arrested further down on Morgan Street.

Police said Lopez had a BB gun that was painted to look real.

He is facing numerous charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
