The investigation into a fight-turned-standoff Sunday continued today with a plea from the Lockport Police Department for information from the public.

A post on the department's Facebook page referred to the incident as a "possible shooting" and asked anyone with information to call LPD at 433-7700.

Police Chief Larry Eggert said Sunday evening that the original 911 call received by LPD was in regards to a fight but officers were told upon arrival that there was a gun involved and that there were shots fired. Some witnesses on the scene said there was never a gun involved, while others said with confidence that there was.

The fight involved between seven and 10 people, five of whom ran into 117 High St. When LPD arrived on the scene, those inside the High Street home didn't come out immediately, causing the department to call in reinforcement from the Niagara County Sheriff's Office and New York State Police.

Eventually, hostage negotiator Mike Stover talked the five people out of the house, one of whom turned out to be a baby. A short while later, the NCSO tactical unit entered the home to insure that it was empty. It was.

Two of the five people who came out of the house were held for questioning, but as of this evening no charges had been filed, according to the Lockport Police Department.
