Willington Man in Custody After Disturbance

A Willington man surrendered after reports of a disturbance and barricaded person at 49 Tinkerville Road on Tuesday morning.

State police swarmed the home around 5 a.m. after a neighbor called 911 and they said a man fired a handgun outside, then went back into the house and barricaded himself inside. 

Neighbors were told to stay inside until the situation was resolved. The man has since been taken to the hospital to be evaluated. 

At least one other person was inside the home and got out safely.

School buses were advised to use alternate routes in the area while the situation was ongoing, but were able to resume the normal route as of 7:12 a.m.
