On The Scene: Tonawanda Standoff & Fire

Tonawanda Police were sent to the scene of a domestic dispute 1t 163 Freiss Rod Monday, where Joseph Hollywood, 60,  was believed to be barricaded with a gun  inside a home he set on fire.  

The incident triggered a neighborhood shelter in place order, a lockdown at Ken-Ton Schools. 

Ultimately because of previous police contact with Hollywood, they feared he would begin shooting, and let the house burn before lifting the lockdowns.
