Charges in Rt. 11 standoff


A portion of Route 11, between New Milford and the intersection with SR 547 was shut down for about 12 hours Friday, Oct. 20, during an incident involving a Kingsley man waving a gun at passing traffic and shooting into the air.
David Hannigan, 54, Kingsley, faces one count of recklessly endangering another person and is currently being held on $10,000 bail in the Susquehanna County Correctional Facility.
He was scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing in Clifford District Court on Tuesday, Oct. 24.
Pennsylvania State Police from Gibson responded to the scene, located near Plank Road on Rt. 11, Harford Twp., just after 3:30 p.m.
Upon police arrival, Hannigan ran back into his residence and failed to comply with numerous orders from law enforcement to come out.
The standoff lasted about 12 hours.
Police established a perimeter, and members of the Pennsylvania Special Emergency Response Team (SERT) took Hannigan into custody.
Police were assisted during the incident by Harford Volunteer Fire Company and EMS; as well as Hop Bottom Hose Co., Columbia Hose Co., New Milford, Hallstead Fire Co., and the Montrose Minute Men.
Earlier this year, Hannigan was found guilty on a non-traffic citation for disorderly conduct involving an incident in Brooklyn Twp.
