A large number of police officers, and a police tactical unit, were witnessed in Godfrey Saturday afternoon and evening reportedly responding to a residence on Canterbury Drive just off Route 3. St. Louis media outlets reported a man was inside his residence refusing to come out and may have been armed, but the incident ended peacefully late last evening and the man was taken to a local hospital.
Social media sites were buzzing with stories and rumors about the situation at the time, but the Madison County Sheriff's Department has not commented on the incident and says it would release a statement at a later time. When that information is released, we'll let you know on Z-1570 and at Alton Daily News.com.
