NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- An early morning call about an angry roommate with a gun brought New Haven's SWAT into action Tuesday.
Roads around Troup Middle School, including Edgewood Ave. and Elm St., were closed for several hours as officers surrounded and searched 20 Platt Street.
A man told detectives his roommate had a gun and was threatening to use it. When officers arrived at the multi-family house the lights were shut off and the shades pulled down.
"The SWAT team made entry into the house, searched the apartment, there was nobody in the apartment," said Officer David Hartman, New Haven Police Department. "Searched the basement, nobody in the basement, and with the co-operation of the other folks living there we searched the apartments and determined the person reported to have been there was not there."
No weapon was found either, police said.
Officers are planning to talk more with the man who made the initial call.
The school at its regular time.
