COVENTRY, Conn. — Police in Coventry have peacefully resolved a standoff Thursday morning after the incident prompted a shelter in place order for residents.
The area of Main Street was closed to all traffic between Stonehouse Road and School Street and has since reopened.
Officials told FOX61 they're happy the situation did not escalate and it was able to come to a peaceful end.
Police said they responded to a call for a person needing assistance at 3:30 a.m. Officials said there was a person "appearing to be in crisis" inside a car. Police could not locate a person and it triggered the shelter in place order.
Eventually, police said they were able to make contact with the person who surrendered and was taken to the hospital for a mental health evaluation.
The Capital Region Emergency Services Team (CREST) was called in as well as the Regional Tactical Team.
No evacuations were issued during the incident.
