Standoff ends peacefully on Club Drive

August 16, 2005

Albany-- People in a northwest Albany neighborhood are back in their homes now after a standoff ended peacefully Tuesday night.

Albany Police say 57-year-old Mary Ann Pace was upset about a welfare check. Her son called police worried she would harm herself. When police arrived at Pace's Club Drive home to check on her, she wouldn't respond to them. For safety reasons, police kept neighbors away.

"There has been mentioned the possibility of a handgun involved inside the house and to be safe we've quartered off the area," says APD's Tracey Barnes.

"Pretty frustrating because we're trying to get the kids home and get them ready for school tomorrow and they have no idea it'll be before we're able to get back in our homes," says neighbor Rebecca Sampson.

At 9:45 p.m., the swat team entered the home and found Pace sitting in her bedroom. There was a handgun in the home but it wasn't in her posession. Police took Pace to the hospital for evaluation.
