Gunfire leads to brief standoff in Sharon

Police were called to the house after neighbors heard multiple gunshots

Lord was arrested and charged with reckless endangering, making terroristic threats and simple assault.

SHARON, Pa. (WYTV) – Gunfire at a house in Sharon led to a brief stand-off early Monday morning.

Cody Lord, 22, lives at the house Ellsworth Street where the shots were fired.

Lord was arrested and charged with reckless endangering, making terroristic threats and simple assault.

Sharon Police Chief Gerry Smith said neighbors called police to the home about 1 a.m. after they heard gunfire.

When officers arrived, they surrounded the house and asked the people inside to come out. Seven to 10 people were inside the house at the time.

A S.W.A.T. team was called in. Smith said the extra help was necessary because of the number of people in the house.

“The standard patrolman on the street is not equipped for something like that – the amount of people,” Smith said. “It is safer for us to get the armored vehicle here and the CERT team. They are equipped to handle that type of entry.”

After about 30 minutes, the people inside came out and surrendered to police without incident.

No one was injured.
