Claremont man taken into custody after armed standoff

Posted: Updated:

CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) - Police say an armed New Hampshire man has been taken into custody after a four-hour standoff with police.

Authorities say Anthony Jarvis Jr. had barricaded himself in his Claremont home on Friday around noon and made repeated threats with a firearm after being contacted by his probation officer.

Nearby houses were evacuated and school bus stops cancelled Friday afternoon during the standoff.

Police say Jarvis was apprehended without incident around 3 p.m.

No one was injured.

The Eagle Times reports that Jarvis' father, Anthony Jarvis Sr., was shot and killed by police in 2008 in a similar standoff in Charleston. The New Hampshire attorney general's office ruled that the shooting was justified.
