After an 11-hour standoff yesterday, police from several agencies subdued a Wading River man with "psychiatric issues" who had barricaded himself in his home yesterday and fired a shot at officers who tried to arrest him on a felony warrant, police said.

Elite officers from the Suffolk Police Department's Emergency Services team and other agencies raided the Barnes Road home of Wade Booth just before 7 p.m. It was a drive to resolve the standoff after telephone negotiations throughout the day failed to coax Booth, who was alone, to surrender, police said.
