Barricaded person in Newtown taken to hospital for evaluation

A barricaded person in Newtown has been taken to the hospital for evaluation.  Newtown Police were called to a Sandy Hook home yesterday afternoon about a person in need of crisis intervention. 

During the investigation by police and medical personnel, the person broke free and engaged in a foot chace.  The person locked themselves in a secured outbuilding.  The combined Danbury Regional Emergency Service Team was called to assist in the safe extraction so the subject could receive medical care. 

About four hours later, Police said the person was transported to the hospital. 

During the situation, Newtown Police Spokesman Lt Aaron Bahamonde said officers were in full control of the scene while negotiators work with the subject to get help.  He noted that the incident was contained and isolated, and there was no immediate danger to area residents.
