EAST MASSAPEQUA - A man was taken into custody earlier today following a standoff with police in East Massapequa.
A manhunt for the suspect began just after 4 p.m. after a call to 911 of a possible burglary in progress near Unqua Road.
Shortly after, a shot was fired by a patrol officer who spotted the suspect. Police say the officer had ordered the suspect to remove his hands from his pockets, but then heard a clicking sound and fired as the suspect made a furtive gesture toward the officer.
According to police, the suspect was not hit and took off into the nearby woods. Officers chased the suspect to Sunrise Highway and then to a house on East Hamilton Avenue.
Police say the suspect barricaded himself inside the home for more than three hours before surrendering.
Nassau police have not yet identified the suspect or the potential charges they may file against him.
