Standoff In Clarkstown

Clarkstown Police responded to a home in Nanuet Friday after calls came in that a man had posted photos of a handgun on the social network Instagram, with threats toward himself. According to Sargent Glen Cummings the 20- year old man had barricaded himself in a home on Babcock Avenue, and was believed to have a firearm. Cummings stated that numerous phone calls were not answered by the unidentified man, so police and armed tactical units remained set up outside with crisis negotiators. Around 4:00 PM police entered the home and the man was taken into custody after a peaceful surrender and later transferred to a hospital. A BB gun resembling a real hand gun was recovered at the scene.
