Suspect arrested in firearm arrest at Porter home

PORTER – Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies surrounded a Youngstown-Lockport Road home Tuesday night after a resident threatened another occupant with a firearm.

Christopher A. Reid, 54, was charged with second-degree menacing.

The incident occurred shortly before 7 p.m., deputies said, when the victim, who was threatened during argument, barricaded himself in a bedroom and called 911. He was able to escape out a rear door and hide behind a barn until police subdued the suspect, authorities said.
