Wellsville Man Jailed In Lieu Of Bail After Armed Stand off Sunday Morning

Wellsville N.Y. Police Department

Wellsville Police Blotter (Previously released)

Sunday, January 1, 2017

Wellsville Police Department, with the assistance of the New York State Police, responded to a Franklin Street residence for a domestic dispute involving a firearm. 

Upon arrival police were advised that the male who was involved in the dispute had fled the residence. Shortly thereafter, information was obtained that the male had attained another firearm from an unknown source and was on his way back to the residence. 

Officers intercepted the male in the backyard of his Franklin Street home where he was found to be in possession of a loaded shotgun. The male ignored repeated commands from the officers to drop the gun and a stand-off ensued in the backyard for approximately 4 hours. 

The Allegany County Sheriff’s Office and New York State Police Negotiation teams, as well as two State Police K-9 units were called in to assist. Through the efforts of the entire law enforcement team, the male who was identified as Edward J. Shea III, age 36 from Wellsville, peacefully surrendered and was transported by Wellsville Ambulance to Jones Memorial Hospital for evaluation. 

After receiving treatment at the hospital, Shea was charged with Harassment in the 2nd degree, Criminal Obstruction of Breathing, Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Menacing in the 2nd degree, Resisting Arrest and Menacing a Police Officer (class D felony). Shea was arraigned by Justice Ames in the Town of Scio Court and remanded to the Allegany County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bail. The Bolivar and Alfred State College-University Police Departments also assisted at the scene.

If it had been a black man holding that loaded shotgun, there wouldn't have been a standoff.....he would have been shot on the spot.

Ed is a wonderful guy - we work with him and he is one of the most hardest working individuals and nicest guys. This comes as a total shock to all of us. We are so thankful the law enforcement officers had the restraint to not be quick to react and let things simmer down so it ended peacefully.
