A Newburgh, N.Y. man who barricaded himself in a house after officers went to arrest him on an attempted murder charge surrendered after 10 hours Wednesday in a chaotic police takedown.
Newburgh police say 26-year-old Gosford Lembhard Jr. is in custody and nobody was injured.
But pandemonium erupted as a crowd of onlookers stormed the house when police went in just before 4 p.m.
Lembhard's younger brother, Michael, was shot to death in a confrontation with city police in March, touching off sometimes violent protests and heightening tensions between some residents and police.
Officers went to the house to arrest Lembhard around 5:30 a.m. and he retreated to a back room with several relatives. He's accused of firing a gun at two men in September and officers had a warrant for his arrest Wednesday.
Those inside the house with Lembhard included a 10-year-old girl.
Michael Sussman, an attorney for the Lembhard family, said he didn't know if his client was armed but said he never threatened police.
