Four in custody after police standoff
MASSENA (AP) – Four people are in custody following a seven hour police standoff at a house in northern New York.
Local media say SWAT team members had surrounded the house in Massena late Wednesday after shots were fired at a car carrying a man and a woman accused of trying to kidnap a 17-year-old girl in February.
Lawyers for the two say the woman in the car was taken to a hospital with wounds that aren’t life-threatening.
During the standoff, police fired several tear gas canisters into the house.
