Rocksbury Ridge standoff ends peacefully

By Matt Lubich and Zant Reyez/The Johnstown Breeze

JOHNSTOWN – A five-hour standoff with an armed man inside his Rocksbury Ridge home was brought to a peaceful conclusion Monday evening, with the suspect giving up to police after law enforcement shot tear gas into the house.

But for a period of time, after he had fired numerous gunshots inside the home, donned a bulletproof vest, and told negotiators and dispatch he had booby-trapped the house, it didn’t look like that would be the case.

“You know how you just get a feeling sometime?” Johnstown Police Cmdr. Aaron Sanchez said Tuesday. “For a while Monday night I really worried that things were going to end badly."
