Brief Standoff Ends Peacefully

Posted: Updated:

Erie police responded in force when a woman reported that her husband was armed and had barricaded himself in a bedroom.  The call came about 8:30 PM Sunday to a home 639 east 4th Street.

Police even had the swat team on standby at the scene. Within a half hour, the man surrendered, without incident. Police report that they took the man mental health evaluation at a local hospital.

Police recovered the weapon, a .357 revolver.  Officers say it was not registered to the man, but instead was reported stolen more than a decade ago.  The investigation into that is continuing.
