Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Haddon Township Police Chief Mark Cavallo reported a barricade situation was resolved peacefully Wednesday.
Haddon Township Police responded shortly before noon to a report of an adult male inside a residence on the 400 block of Addison Avenue who was described by a relative as being intoxicated, suicidal and having access to firearms. The man was determined to be barricaded alone inside the residence.
The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, Camden County Sheriff’s Department and other law enforcement partners responded to aid Haddon Township Police.
During the course of the incident, the man fired several shots inside the residence. He also shot at a tactical robot that police had sent inside.
Police were eventually able to remove the man with no harm to himself around 3:20 p.m. He was taken for a medical evaluation.
Charges are pending the outcome of an investigation.
Released Wednesday, December 7, 2015.
