Farmington police have arrested a man after a domestic violence incident that shut down part of the Unionville section of town.
Police charged Kurt M. Jauron, 48, of Unionville, with breach of peace, risk of injury to a minor and reckless endangerment charges. The arrest happened after police responded at 8:12 p.m. Saturday to an apartment complex at 35 A Mill Street to investigate a report of a "suicidal male suject armed with a handgun," police said in a news release.
Farmington police seized a glock handgun from the home.
Upon arrival, police confirmed that Jauron was intoxicated, armed with a handgun, and threatening to kill himself after a domestic disturbance. His girlfriend and her young daughter, a minor, were in the home when police first arrived, but they were able to safety leave the apartment as police established a perimeter, police said.
According to police, Jauron then temporarily barricaded himself.
The situation forced police to cordon off part of the street and issue a shelter-in-place order for Matthews Restaurant. Neighbors and area businesses received a reverse 911 call that told them to stay away from the windows and doors.
Bristol and Plainville officers responded to assist Farmington police in securing an outer perimeter. A North Central Municipal Emergency Services SWAT team was activated but did not have to respond because Farmington police were able to contact Jauron inside and convince him to leave the apartment.
Jauron eventually exited the apartment peacefully. No shots were fired and no one injured.
Police took jauron into custody without incident at 9:30 p.m. and later released him on a $50,000 non-surety bond. He was transported to UConn Health Center's John Dempsey Hospital to be evaluated.
