Cleveland Police and SWAT took a man in for questioning after standoff on Cleveland's east side.

They believe the 35-year old man may have information related to an East Cleveland homicide.

Early Friday morning cops were called to the scene of a body found at Shaw and Hayden in East Cleveland. The body was found in a bag, next to a car in a garage, behind an apartment building.

"Inside we did recover a body and a this point it was wrapped and because of the state of decomposition we are not certain if it is male or female at this point," said Detective Scott Gardner, East Cleveland Police.

"Where we found the body, it was right next to the car that he was driving," said Chief Ralph Spotts.

"It's just a shame that someone's child in that bag. Some mother some where it don't matter if they're 90 or 100 -- that's somebody's baby in that bag," said Gloria Hopkins.

Police connected the car to a Michael Madison who lives in the same neighborhood where the body was located.

Madison was tracked him to his mother's house. She lives at the corner of E. 197 and Chickasaw in Cleveland -- where the standoff took place Friday afternoon. 

Police broke down the door and Madison was arrested without incident.

The East Cleveland victim has not been identified.
