Barricaded Subject Armed with Knife Peacefully Deescalated

On April 8, 2022 at approximately 17:45 hours officers from District C11 responded to Barry Street for reports of an armed subject barricaded inside of a residence, also known as a Code 99.

Officers were told the barricaded man was in emotional distress and was possession of a knife. SWAT was soon called to the scene, as negotiators attempted to deescalate the subject.

The man was eventually subdued peacefully, and was transported by Boston EMS to an area hospital for an evaluation.

The situation drew large crowds of neighbors, recording and taking photographs on their cellphones, as they tried to ascertain what was going on inside of the residence.
