State police use tear gas to end armed stand-off

An armed stand off in McKean County ended early today. Scores of troopers surrounded a home at 5737 Route 646 in Keating Township. Roads were closed and after hours of negotiations, a State Police Special Emergency Response Team fired tear gas into the home. After a brief period, 27-year old Simon Peter Heffner surrendered. Just hours ago, he was jailed on $100,000 bail.

Prior to the arrival of troopers, Heffner had argued with his father, injuring him.
