Hours-long police standoff in Brighton ends peacefully

BRIGHTON, Colo. -- An hours-long standoff in Brighton that started early Sunday afternoon ended peacefully with several arrests.

Roadways were closed in the a residential area near Walnut Street and North Ninth Avenue as police officers and sheriff’s deputies worked to bring the tense situation to an end.

The standoff started when officers were called to a home on a report of a disturbance with weapons and possible shots fired, the Brighton Police Department said.

Police said a barricade situation began when people ran into a house as officers arrived.

“[Police] wouldn’t even let me get to my driveway,” a homeowner said.

While police say they were told shots might have been fired, neighbors told FOX31 they never heard gunshots.

Several people were taken away in handcuffs.

As of late Sunday, police wouldn’t say if they suspect shots were fired before officers arrived.

Officers didn’t say if any weapons were found in the home.
