BULLETIN: Firearm threat prompts police response

The threatened use of a firearm mid-Tuesday afternoon prompted law enforcement personnel to block off a large portion of Vermillion's Main Street from the corner of Hall and Main, located in the western portion of the city, all the way down the bluff past Valiant Vineyards to the intersection of Main and Cherry streets west of Vermillion.

"Law enforcement was called to a residence in which a gun was threatened to be used, and right now, officers have the residence secured," Vermillion Police Detective Robin Hower told the Plain Talk at approximately 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

He did confirm that an individual was still in the residence, which is located in the vicinity of Bunyan's Restaurant at  1201 W. Main Street.

"There's not a whole lot I can say right now because of the ongoing action that is being taken," Hower said.
