NEWPORT, Vt. (AP) -- Newport police say two people are in custody following a standoff in the northern Vermont city.
Police say the situation began at about 5:30 a.m. Wednesday when a man reported 400 police offers were surrounding his home.
When officers arrived, the man was on top of his garage with a rifle. There was also a 15-year-old boy behind the house with a rifle.
The two men, whose names were not immediately released, were taken into custody at about 11 a.m.
Shortly before 7 a.m., police had ordered residents on Highland Avenue between West Main and Pleasant streets to stay in their homes and lock their doors. They were later told to evacuate.
Heavily armed state, local, county and federal law enforcement officers surrounded the home.
