According to police, after investigations no gun was found and the home owner was cooperative. The streets were re-opened just after 9 a.m. 

Neighbors told News 8 that the streets were blocked off again around 5 p.m. and police sent a bomb squad as a precaution to the same house where that morning standoff happened. For about two hours police investigated and no apparent bomb was found. The streets re-opend for residents just after 7:15 p.m.

“That’s twice today they had us on lock down. This morning and tonight. They had the bomb squad there I believe and I don’t know anything beyond that,” said Glen Chase who lives off Farmington Rd.  “I have no worries about this neighborhood, I don’t worry, I sleep at night. Crime is very low, everyone gets along with everybody here, it’s not a big issue. Something like this , what goes around these days its nothing out of the ordinary.”  

News 8 was there when a few police officers were searching throughout the house plus a car in the drive way. Details have not been released as to what exactly police were looking for.
