Negotiators were on scene trying to make contact with at least one man, but were getting no response. After more than six hours, SWAT teams found him in the ventilation area of a pizza shop that shares the building with the gun store.
He was arrested, and that’s when police learned there was a second man still inside. That suspect was located about two hours later and was also taken into police custody.
A shelter in place order was issued to residents in the borough for much of the morning, but was lifted shortly after the first suspect was apprehended.READ MORE: Ninth Annual Brad Fox 5K Run Returns After Virtual Year Due To COVID-19
