SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A standoff ends peacefully after six hours in Syracuse.
Police were called to a home at 102 Byrne Place around midnight after reports that people in the home were pointing rifles out a window. Police ordered the person to drop the rifle, and the person complied.
When officers ordered all three people inside the house to come out, one 45-year-old refused. Police were told that she was emotionally disturbed and armed with another gun.
It took a SWAT team six hours of negotiations before they were able to get into the house and take the woman into custody. The woman was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
Her name is not being released at this time, and she has not been charged with any crimes.
A .22 caliber rifle and a BB gun were recovered from the home.
South Salina Street was closed for several hours between East Cheltenham Road and East Seneca Turnpike but has since reopened.
