-Niagara Falls Police responded to 20th and Independence Avenue in the evening hours of Sunday, July 14th, 2019, after receiving calls for a domestic disturbance and possible suspect with a loaded gun. According to reports, the 911 caller reported that a female was screaming inside a house and was being followed by who was carrying a long gun on his shoulder. When officers arrived on scene they observed a male matching the description given by the 911 caller. Upon approaching the male and asking if he was armed, the suspect refused to answer then attempted to walk away from officers.
