Two Elmira Men Arrested On Weapons Charges

Recommended Posts

This morning at approximately 11:25 am, the Elmira Police Department responded to the area of Grand Central Ave and E. Center Street for a report of a man with a handgun. 

Upon arrival, officers spoke with the caller who advised that two males approached him while he was in the area of said intersection.  One of the males pointed a handgun at him and then fled the area.  The male indicated that he was familiar with at least one of the suspects and provided descriptions of the suspects.  Officers established a perimeter around the area and contacted Diven Elementary School and requested that the school be placed into a lockdown condition as a precaution.

Officers observed a male matching one of the descriptions in the area of Halls Lane and alerted other officers.  An inner perimeter was then established around a residence in the 300 block of E. Center Street.

Negotiations were established and both men surrendered without incident.

Great job EPD ! Unfortunately this now the norm for our area and let’s face it , there is no solution at all to prevent it ! All the pro gun cliches apply here , now and in the future . Interestingly it is we that possess and carry firearms Legally that seem to be the ones that are required to  “slink “ around with our protective devices concealed , so as not to cause fear ! While these types flaunt and use their stolen , illegally possessed weapons actually causing enough fear to lock down a school !

All I could think was, at least one of them is already used to having a number printed on his shirt.
