Armed Man Arrested, Charged after Hours-Long Standoff at West Hempfield Township Home | Lancaster County District Attorney's Office

Shawn Stryker

An armed West Hempfield Township man was arrested Sunday night after an hours-long standoff at his home. Lancaster County Special Emergency Response Team (SERT) took 49-year-old Shawn Stryker into custody about 9:15 p.m., about 10 hours after police were initially called to the 500 block of Goldfinch Drive. 

During the standoff, a SERT officer fired a shot when Stryker exited the home with a rifle drawn and aimed at police. Soon after, Stryker fired two shots while inside his home.
