TRUMBULL, Conn. (WTNH) — Police gave the all-clear after a lockdown in a Trumbull neighborhood Tuesday night, which came as a result of a domestic disturbance in the area.

The lockdown began in the area of Tashua Road and Madison Avenue at about 8:55 p.m. Trumbull Police said they were called to a home in that area around 8 p.m. for a domestic disturbance. Before officers arrived, police said the suspect fled from that house to a building next to it on the property, armed with a handgun.

Police secured the area surrounding the home, activating the Southwest Regional Emergency Response Team, who negotiated with the suspect. Police said the suspect surrendered peacefully to officers.

Residents were sent a citizen alert message along with social media alerts asking them to stay inside their homes while police were on the scene.

At 12 a.m., Trumbull Police posted an update via Twitter that they had a person in custody and the scene was all clear.

No injuries were reported.

The incident is still under investigation.
