RPD: Overnight shooting leads to standoff, suspect in custody
ROCHESTER, N .Y. (WHEC) — A man is facing charges after an hours-long standoff on Orange Street that started at 1:30 a.m. Monday and ended later that morning.
It started after a shooting happened overnight where an occupied car was shot. No one was hurt. Police say the suspect in that shooting ran into an Orange Street home and neighbors were told to stay inside until police got the scene under control.
"We spent several hours trying to make… to communicate with the male, with the occupants of the house, and trying to get the occupants of the house to come out," Capt. Ryan Tauriello said. "Unfortunately, they would not do so. we requested the assistance of our RPD swat team, who did come in and assist us in this investigation."
Police say the SWAT team responded and eventually the man came out willingly. He is in custody now as well as another person who was located within the house. SWAT cleared the property after that.
Police say they recovered three rifles, a handgun, lots of ammunition, a ballistic vest and what they believe is cocaine from the Orange Street home.
