Entry Description

Peru – This morning at approximately 8:30 a.m., a four hour stand-off ended with Blaine O’Neil, 45, Peru, IN, being arrested on a felony charge of criminal recklessness with a firearm.

This morning at approximately 4:30 a.m., officers from the Peru Police Department responded to a 911 call of gun shots fired inside or near a home at 311 West Second Street in Peru, IN. The first responding officer allegedly observed, through a window, a man inside the residence holding what appeared to be an assault style rifle. The man was later identified as O’Neil. Officers then set up a perimeter and evacuated nearby homes.

Hostage crisis negotiators from the Indiana State Police and the Miami County Sheriff’s Department attempted to communicate with O’Neil. He did not respond to the officers. At approximately 8:30 a.m., officers from the Indiana State Police Emergency Response Team made entry into the residence and took O’Neil into custody without further incident.

O’Neil is incarcerated in the Miami County Jail. There were no reported injuries in this incident.

This is ongoing investigation by the Peru Police Department. All future questions should be referred to their department.

Also assisting the Peru Police Department was Miami County Emergency Management and Dukes Hospital EMS.
