After almost twelve hours, a standoff in Victor has ended.
Just before 9:00p.m. Monday, a man and a woman surrendered to police without incident. Sheriff Phil Povero tells News10NBC that they used tear gas to force the husband and wife out of the house. Police say numerous shots were fired inside the house throughout the evening.
Both are now in custody. The woman was taken to the hospital to be checked out. The man was treated at the scene and refused additional medical treatment. Police have not released their names, but say both are considered suspects.
Police are looking through the home for possible explosives.
The standoff started just after 9:00a.m. Monday after police say neighbors along Ketchum Street in the Jacob’s Landing neighborhood called police about a man shooting at parked cars. The man then went back into his house and Ontario County Sheriff's Deputies, as well as New York State Police and Monroe County Sheriff's Deputies, worked on getting the man out.
The incident forced Victor Schools to take precaution and neighbors had been evacuated. No word yet on when they'll be allowed to return to their homes.
