Saco Police say three people have been arrested and a fourth escaped after a police standoff at a Saco motel this morning.

WCSH-TV reports police had been at the scene since 2:00 in the morning. Sometime around 9:00, police made their way into the room and arrested two of the three people who were there. One man escaped out a window and hasn't been apprehended. A fourth person, a woman, had left the room earlier and was arrested. Police say they found a handgun outside the motel near that window.

 

All the guests and staff members were evacuated from the Brookside Motel on Ocean Park Road in Saco this morning. Police spent part of the morning talking to the people who refused to exit the room.
