Randolph Police Respond to Barricaded Subject Incident Overnight

RANDOLPH — Chief William Pace reports that the Randolph Police Department responded to a incident involving a barricaded subject overnight.

There were no injuries reported and the incident ended peacefully with the subject surrendering to police.

At approximately 9:50 p.m. Monday, July 8, Randolph Police responded to a home on Paine Road for a report of a man with a gun making threats to harm others.

Upon arrival, Randolph Police were able to confirm that a 60-year-old Randolph man was inside of the house with a gun. A woman was also inside of the house with him. The man refused to come out of the home and officers set up a perimeter around the home. Out of an abundance of caution, the MetroLEC SWAT team was called to respond to the scene.

After a lengthy negotiation with the man, he surrendered to police without further incident shortly before 1 a.m. Tuesday. The man was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.

The incident remains under active investigation by the Randolph Police Department and charges will likely be brought against the man.

A handgun was retrieved and seized as evidence inside of the home.
