Blotter: The Colony police sends SWAT team to home

Comments () A Text Size

The Colony Police Department sent its SWAT team to surround a home in the 5000 block of Avery Lane shortly after 7 p.m. Monday when a neighbor reported hearing what sounded like a gunshot.

Police officials said the home was known to have small children inside and SWAT wasn’t leaving until the uncooperative suspects came out and officers determined that everyone inside was safe.

A news release issued by Police Chief Joseph Clark said that after several hours of negotiations, the occupant came out of the house and officers verified that no one had been injured.

No arrests were made and an initial assault call to the residence is under investigation.
