Police: Man locked himself in bathroom after fight with wife

BOSTON, N.Y. (WIVB) – Officials say a subject is in custody Monday afternoon, after a tense situation in the Town of Boston.

Police responded to Eckhardt Road, between Taylor Road and East Lane, around 10:30 a.m. after the man’s wife called authorities to say her husband had locked himself in the bathroom following an argument and may have a shotgun.

Officers asked nearby residents to stay inside their homes while the situation unfolded. Troopers say a negotiator spoke to the man via cell phone and shortly before 2 p.m., he surrendered to authorities. He was taken into custody without incident.

The man, 30, was taken to the Erie County Medical Center for an evaluation. He is not facing charges at this time.
