Negotiator ends Mamaroneck standoff peacefullyPosted: Updated:
A police standoff in Mamaroneck ended peacefully after a man held officers at bay for hours Friday.
According to police, a disturbed man in a home on Grand Street threaten to kill himself and shoot any officers who tried to stop him. Heavily armed officers from the Sound Shore SWAT team and officers from the MTA were called to the house at around noon.
Police evacuated neighbors from their homes as a safety precaution, including a day-care center. They also blocked off several surrounding blocks in the area.
A police hostage negotiator got on the phone and began speaking with a brother of the disturbed man who was also in the house at the time. After some time, both brothers came out and surrendered themselves and the gentleman in question was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
No weapons were found on the suspect or inside the house, according to police.
