CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The “all clear” has been given, following a report of a possible barricaded person on Grattan Street in Chicopee Wednesday night.
The police department’s spokesman, Officer Mike Wilk, said officers and members of the Special Response Team rushed to 1200 Grattan St. after someone reported a person possibly with a firearm around 9:24 p.m.
Officers arrived and allegedly found three people inside a car with narcotics. Wilk said those three people were arrested. Members of the SRT went on to check on an apartment that may have be connected to the people who were arrested.
The SRT members knocked on the door, announced their presence and a man with his wife and kids inside the home answered the door. Wilk said everything appeared to be fine and the house turned out not to be connected to the three people arrested.
Officer Wilk explained that in situations where they receive barricaded reports, SRT members are called as a precaution because they are trained to handle the situation in the safest way for officers and residents.
A photo sent to our newsroom just after 10:15 p.m. showed at least six Chicopee Police cruisers surrounding the Grattan St. home.
