A nearly two-hour standoff with a person who was barricaded in a house on Springbrook Court in the Town of Clarence ended peacefully as the person surrendered to Erie County sheriff deputies about 9:50 p.m. Tuesday. There were no injuries, and there was no immediate word on any arrest.
Scott Zylka, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said an investigation will continue to try to determine why the unidentified person was barricaded in the home. Calls about the incident came in just before 8 p.m. Tuesday and deputies blocked traffic on Ranchview Road near Springbrook Court during the standoff. Zylka would not say whether the person inside the house was a man, woman or child.
