Domestic Violence on Tuesday:
Murray standoff ends peacefully
with two in custody, Orleans County

An hours-long standoff at a mobile home park in Murray on Tuesday ended with two people in custody, including one who had to be revived with Narcan, and taken to Strong Memorial Hospital, Rochester, for evaluation under the state’s Mental Hygiene Law, reports the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office.

The incident began about 1:15 p.m. when the Orleans County Sheriff’s 911 Communication Center received a call from a male located in a trailer on Newport Drive in the County Line Mobile Home Park. The caller reported that he had struck his girlfriend in the back of her head and that she was unconscious and bleeding.

As deputies and other law enforcement officers were responding to the scene, the adult female in the house called and said that the male wished to engage with police to cause a “suicide by cop” situation, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Law enforcement arrived and made contact with the male. Eventually, the adult female and three children exited the trailer and the woman was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital, Rochester, for treatment of injuries she had sustained.

Negotiation attempts continued with the man for about three hours, the Sheriff’s Office said. At this point, officers could hear what appeared to be a person in distress over a “throw phone” that had been placed in the residence, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Law enforcement entered the trailer and discovered a male vomiting and nearly unconscious. Deputies administered two doses of Narcan in an attempt to revive the individual, the Sheriff’s Office said. Monroe Ambulance and Murray Fire/EMS were then moved up to the scene and the male was transported to Strong Hospital.

The man had threatened suicide while one the phone with 911 dispatchers. He apparently ingested some type of substance while in the trailer, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The female subject told deputies at the hospital that she had taken pills in an attempt to die by suicide, the Sheriff’s Office said. Both individuals were taken into custody and turned over to Strong Hospital for evaluation.

“We are extremely pleased that we were able to bring this standoff to a peaceful resolution,” Sheriff Christopher M. Bourke said in a statement. The Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Holley Police Department, State Police, Albion Police and state Department of Conservation Police.
