ROME, N.Y. -- Rome police are investigating a father-son domestic dispute at Meadowbrook Apartments on Levitt Street.

During the early morning hours, police say a father and his 25-year-old son were involved in the dispute. They say it was reported to police the son was emotionally disturbed and possibly in possession of a gun.

The father was able to leave the residence and call 911.

Police set up a perimeter in the area of the apartment.

A reverse 911 message alerted residents in the immediate area to shelter in place, and those in other areas to stay away.

A crisis negotiation team made several attempts to make contact with the son. Just before 5 a.m. police were able to make contact and the son was escorted out of the apartment. He is receiving medical treatment now.
