Standoff in the suburbs
November 26, 2011 by Chris Dunn
I started work a little early yesterday after my editor texted me about “a guy holed up in [his house] with a firearm.” Turns out the neighborhood was no more than a mile (as the crow flies) from my apartment, deep in the heart of the suburbs.

Members of the York County Quick Response Team arrive at the intersection of Chestnut Run Road and Primrose Lane, near the 2730 block of Chestnut Run, in response to an alleged hostage situation on Friday, Nov. 25, 2011. The standoff was not in fact a hostage situation, but rather a man alone in his home who fired off several gunshots and refused to exit his house in a nine-hour standoff. The man exited his home peacefully and was taken to Central Booking at 8:45 p.m.
The initial call came in at 11:45 a.m. Reporter Mike and I arrived at about 12:30 p.m., and stayed until Rebecca relieved Mike and I had to leave for a 4 p.m. assignment.
