ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – A 20-year-old Elmira man has been indicted after a standoff with Elmira Police on August 23.
Alvonsey Manigault III was indicted by a Chemung County Grand Jury on seven charges after police recovered multiple semiautomatic weapons from a home on Baldwin Street.
Police responded at approximately 5:14 a.m. to the intersection of Lake Street at E. Second Street after a report of shots fired. They overheard more gunshots coming from an address on the 400 block of Baldwin Street, and established a perimeter around the area.
At 8:20 a.m. Manigault exited the home and was taken into custody. Members of the Elmira Police Department SWAT team entered the home and removed a young child, but no one else was inside.
Police recovered a semiautomatic rifle, two semiautomatic handguns, drugs, various rounds of ammunition for both guns, and several magazines for the rifle.
According to court documents, Manigault had a loaded semi-automatic 5.56 caliber rifle with attachments that included either “a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weather, a bayonet mount, a flash suppressor, or a grenade launcher.”
Manigault also had a .45 caliber Colt semi-automatic pistol, as well as heroin and meth.
Police reopened the streets near Elm Chevrolet shortly before 11:00 a.m.
