CNN adds that officers later identified him to CNN as Bradley Parscale: "Parscale has not been seen much at the campaign's office since his demotion, a campaign source told CNN's Jim Acosta". Parscale began to walk slowly toward an officer at the end of his driveway, saying, "She's lying, I'm your friend".
Parscale eventually surrendered to the police.
According to the statement, officers made contact with him, "developed a rapport, and safely negotiated for him to exit the home". She said she heard a gunshot from inside the house after "fleeing", but later said it might have been a auto backfiring.
The wife appears to be relieved Brad's still alive when the cop gets him on the phone.
Fort Lauderdale police did not confirm to the station that Parscale was the person who was barricaded, but the news organization said the property at the address listed did belong to him and his wife.

He was demoted shortly after a Trump campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma that was widely panned for its poor attendance.
U.S. President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Brad Parscale tried harm himself at his Florida house.
While he has remained a fixture in Trump's reelection effort, Parscale was demoted in July from campaign manager to an adviser on matters of digital fundraising and advertising. "We are ready to support him and his family in any way possible", read the statement. While the Republican National Committee owns most of the campaign's data, voter modeling and outreach tools, Parscale ran most of the microtargeted online advertising that Trump aides believe was key to his victory four years ago.
A spokesman for Trump's campaign, Tim Murtaugh, promptly blamed the president's political opponents for the incident on Sunday.
Officers took possession of 10 weapons that were inside the house, including handguns, shotguns, and rifles, the police report said.
Speculation has arisen that numerous issues in Parscale's personal life, including the accusation that he was involved in helping the Trump campaign launder $170 million, could be linked to his recent behavior.
