A police standoff on a residential street in Farmington ended peacefully today with a man in custody.
Officers responded to 21 Junior Road at around 2:00 p.m., after receiving a call from a resident who said a man had a gun and fired it outside a home.
Authorities identified the man as 41-year-old Bruce Silvernail. He is a convicted felon and not allowed to possess firearms, said police.
There is a warrant for his arrest for possession of narcotics with intent to sell, said Lt. Colin Ryan, spokesman for Farmington police.
The regional SWAT team surrounded the home as police made contact with Silvernail on the phone.
Police said Silvernail spoke to them briefly, then he hung up.
Just before 2:30p.m., police said Silvernail tried to escape the home from a back door, but officers found him and took him into custody.
No one was hurt in this incident.
Police are seeking a serach warrant to search the home.
