MENDON- In a dramatic conclusion to a five-hour-plus standoff in a residential neighborhood last night, a SWAT team fired several rounds of tear gas into a home at 52 Bellingham St. about 10:40 p.m., and that led to the arrest, just before 11 p.m., of a man who had barricaded himself for more than five hours. He had allegedly fired one gunshot earlier.

A number of neighbors reported seeing a woman run outside screaming about 5:30 p.m., and called 911 to report the sound of a gunshot.
