11-hour standoff ends peacefully in Floyd
FLOYD — An 11-hour standoff with a barricaded and potentially armed subject on Camroden Road came to a peaceful end Monday morning, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Robert M. Maciol said deputies responded to a residence near Floyd Town Park for a reported noise complaint at about 10:22 p.m. Sunday.
Maciol said a deputy was met at the front door by an armed individual.
“He was greeted by a guy who appeared to be pointing a handgun at him,” Maciol explained.
The man slammed the door shut and the deputy retreated, authorities said.
Back-up was called to the scene and a perimeter was set up around the residence. Negotiators were brought in after the man inside refused to come out of the home.
Maciol said deputies remained on scene throughout the night. An alert was sent to neighboring homes at about 2 a.m. advising residents to shelter in place.
The subject eventually surrendered without incident shortly before 9:30 a.m. on Monday. His identity was not immediately released.
A search warrant was secured for the residence so that deputies could look for the weapon, Maciol stated.
