Person taken into custody after standoff involving gun in Webster
WEBSTER, N.Y. — The scene is clear and the roads are back open in Webster after a heavy police presence on East Main street on Tuesday night.
Webster police said there was a standoff involving a teen with a gun inside of a home, which started at around 4 p.m. Police got a call about an altercation that took place at that home on East Main Street and a confrontation involving two young men where a shotgun was pulled. One of them ended up leaving the scene.
Webster Police Captain Mark Reed said they had help from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, New York State troopers, and Irondequoit police. They set up a perimeter around the house and shut down the road.
The drone and SWAT team worked to make contact with the boy inside the home. After almost 5 hours, he was taken into custody without incident.
“We conducted a hyperreach, reached out to a lot of people in the area to shelter in place for the time being,” Captain Reed said. “We did close the roads down. The village is obviously a very busy area with a lot of unknown factors like not being able to make contact with the individual inside. We wanted to make sure the residents were safe. So we do appreciate their patience in staying in the house and off the streets.”
Charges are pending in this incident. No injuries were reported.
