Police trying to sort out incident, possibly involving shots fired, in Le Roy
Submitted by Howard B. Owens on January 11, 2013 - 10:26pm
Deputies and troopers are on scene of an incident in the area of Route 5 and Keeney Road, Le Roy, that involved some concern about a subject with a gun.
A resident had reported shots fired near his house and a person possibly on his porch.
Law enforcement responded and began a radio conversation about a subject in a house who was seen with a gun.
They observed the actions of the person inside and at one point he was seen putting on either a dark sweater or a vest on (the deputy couldn't see which for sure). He was then seen bending down and standing back up multiple times, doing something the deputies couldn't see below the window.
Le Roy Fire Department was summoned to the fire hall to stand by for possible traffic control.
About that time a deputy was heard yelling over the radio, "Let me see your hands! Let me see your hands!"
A second later, the deputy reported, "one in custody."
Deputies and troopers entered the house and reported two other subjects inside the residence.
At this point, it sounds like law enforcement is trying to sort things out. A deputy told dispatch, "we're securing one subject until we figure out what's going on."
Le Roy fire remains on stand by.
UPDATE 10:27 p.m.: Route 5 and Keeney is being reopened. A deputy tells dispatch, "we're all set" (meaning the situation is under control).
UPDATE 10:44 p.m.: One person being taken into custody (we'll post details from any forthcoming press release when available).
