MSP STOP team called to Leominster

4 Sep

Leominster PD responded to a call involving a barricaded subject who might be armed this morning on Liberty Street, and requested Massachusetts State Police STOP team assistance. The subject, a 19 year old woman, was reported to be barricaded in the basement with access to a black powder rifle, a .22 rifle, and possibly a handgun. Police established a perimeter around the residence, and fire trucks and an ambulance staged nearby. Parts of the neighborhood were reported to be evacuated, and area roads were shut down. The stand off continued for about an hour before the woman was taken into custody without incident. After being evaluated by EMS, MSP turned the subject over to LPD.
