A standoff situation in the city of Ithaca has led to the arrest of one suspect.
Police were called just before 11:30 a.m. Saturday morning to the Cayuga Garden Apartments on Chestnut Hill for a report of a person attacking a neighbor's dog and making verbal threats to other residents.
While officers were on scene, they heard a gunshot and then saw a white male with a handgun running in the parking lot of one of the apartment buildings.
Residents were asked to shelter in place as police from multiple agencies came to the scene including the Ithaca Tompkins Crisis Negotiations Team.
The suspect barricaded himself inside one of the apartments. After several hours, police did make contact with the man and brought him into custody.
The suspect has since been identified as 27-year-old, Bruce R. Mead II.
Mead is now facing two felonies for criminal possession of a weapon and remains in Tompkins County Jail with no bail.
