Officers were in Hempstead village early Thursday evening, responding to a “barricade situation” at an apartment complex on Terrace Avenue, authorities said.

 A spokesman with Nassau police said a “barricade situation” drew officers to the Terrace Avenue address. 

On scene, shortly after 7 p.m., there were dozens of Nassau police cruisers on Terrace Avenue and nearby streets. Officers in the area closed off portions of Terrace Avenue and nearby Bedell Street.

Hempstead Village Mayor Don Ryan, in a statement later, said the standoff was resolved "without incident."

Ryan's statement thanked neighboring police departments, county police, and "the special community relations" of officers involved.
