At least three men are in custody and others are believed to be at large following a multi-agency reaction to a hostage situation on Lock Street.

Lockport Police, the Niagara County Sheriff's Office and New York State Police responded to the reported hostage situation at 287 Lock St. around 11 p.m. Saturday. Shortly before 1:30 a.m., three males were in the custody of the Lockport Police Department and the police agencies were scouring the city for other perpetrators.

About two dozen law enforcement officers were on scene at the Lock Street home and a Lockport Fire Department paramedic crew was waiting down the street in case they were called for. They never were.

Lock Street was barricaded at Monroe Street and again at Washington Street to keep the scene clear of onlookers.

Following the detainment of the three men at Lock Street, police continued to search the area, including Upson Park, for other parties involved.

CORRECTION: Two suspects in custody are male. One is female. (11:13 a.m. March 30, 2014)
