After several unsuccessful attempts to get Gifford out of the home, police called in negotiators and S.W.A.T. team members from the Southeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council.

Still, negotiators were unsuccessful in getting Gifford to leave the residence, so S.W.A.T. members went in. Police say at that time, Gifford exited the home peacefully.

He was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital for evaluation.

In addition to the warrant, Gifford now faces several charges associated with the standoff, police said.
