MANCHESTER, Conn. (WTNH) — A New Hampshire man is in the custody of Manchester, Conn. police after allegedly barricading himself in a hotel room and negotiating with police in a three-hour standoff Monday evening.
Police were told that 26-year-old Jordan Pappalardo of Manchester, New Hampshire, was being sought out on an extraditable warrant and was staying at the Courtyard at Marriot on Slater Street in Manchester, Conn.
When police made contact with Pappalardo at around 10:30 p.m. Monday. Police said he barricaded himself in his room and told police he had a firearm, threatening to shoot the officers.
Police evacuated area rooms and set up a perimeter. The Capital Region Emergency Services Team (CREST) was called in to assist and communicate with Pappalardo.
