GREENWICH - A Greenwich man is hospitalized this evening after town officials say he got into an argument with his mother, seized a gun and refused to come out of his home.
Members of the Stamford SWAT team helped Greenwich police officers during the three-hour standoff, but a local lawmaker says his conversation with the 48-year-old man helped it all come to an end.
Rep. Fred Camillo says the man is a childhood friend who suffers from diabetes and a nerve disease. According to police, he was depressed and high on prescription drugs.
First Selectman Peter Tesei, who was also on the scene, says all of the man's family members escaped from the home during the standoff and were not hurt.
The man was taken to the hospital and no charges have been filed at this time.
