Negotiators were able to talk a Farmington man into coming out of his home after he locked himself inside his Songbird Lane residence following a domestic disturbance involving his wife. 

Farmington police responded to 70 Songbird Lane at 6:21 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 6. A female resident, who left the home and returned after an incident with her husband, was not able to get back inside, police said.

The husband had access to firearms and refused to come outside, police said. 

While the man barricaded himself in his home, police evacuated neighboring condo units "as a precaution" and kept "a tight perimeter on the involved unit."

The North Central Emergency Services team responded. Negotiators made contact with the man and eventually were able to convince him to leave the home. He was unarmed when he exited the residence and was cooperative with police. 

Police are investigating the circumstances of the domestic disturbance and the "barricaded situation," the department said in a press release.

If you have any information related to the case, Farmington police ask that you contact the department at 860-675-2400.
