Monday night, a man allegedly killed himself inside a home on Great Neck Road that had four children inside as well following a standoff with police.
Monday night, at approximately 8:53 p.m., the Waterford Police Department responded to a 911 call at 147 Great Neck Road that a man was suicidal, according to a press release from the Waterford Police Department. Police arrived and found out that the man was inside the home with a gun, along with four children, according to the release.
