To the citizens of Pelham,
As was reported in the media, your police officers responded to a call for assistance from a wife who came to the police station to advise that her husband was intoxicated and suicidal. She also indicated he was in possession of a handgun and that he had asked her to leave the house. The police department's assistance was then requested in checking her husband's well being.
