posted by Billie Owens in batavia.

Batavia Police, detectives, Sheriff's deputies, medics and firefighters responded to a hostage situation on Highland Park about a half hour ago. Four people are now in custody. No one else is believed to be inside the lower apartment where the incident took place.

The first report indicated a person reportedly entered an apartment with a baseball bat and subesquently police shut down traffic at Pringle Avenue and Highland Park, and at Jackson Street and Highland, as well as Central Avenue.

UPDATE 2:25 p.m.: The perimeter is being opened. However, pedestrians and bystanders are still being kept at bay for the time being. Mercy medics are back in service.
