SWAT team responded to Saranac Ave residence

SARANAC AVE STANDOFF CAME FROM FAKE CALLS

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Buffalo Police responded to a home on Saranac Ave. Saturday night for a call of a man making threats inside.

The call came in around 6 p.m. in the 100 block of Saranac Ave. Buffalo Police tell us that Buffalo SWAT and the Crisis Management Team were both called to the scene.

After about two hours of negotiations, they say the man surrendered peacefully.

Less than an hour after giving us that information, police then told us the man was actually at ECMC during the whole ordeal. Police say he was making what they called "fake calls."

No charges have been filed at this time.
