UPDATE: Man Found Dead by Suicide After Hours-Long Police Situation

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE (6:30) : According to New York State Police, the situation that led to multiple road closures around State Route 115 and I-99 is over and the roads are open. 

According to NYSP Captain George Delnagro, the individual in question was found in a Kuhl Road home, dead of an apparent suicide. 

Delnagro said earlier in the day, the suspect reportedly called Steuben County 911, sparking the emergency response. 

CERT, SWAT, New York State Police and the Steuben County Sheriff's Office were all on scene. 

Delnago said the reason for the response was because they were unsure what to expect. 

The individual's name is not being released at this time. 

As of right now, it is still currently unclear whether or not this incident is related to the hit and run in the North Lawrence Township that occurred early this morning. 

UPDATE (4:20): Our reporter on scene says he spoke to construction workers on scene. 

They said they were working on the bridge that overlooks Watson Creek when New York State Police approached them. The workers then said the troopers told them to clear the area due to a possible active shooting. 

We have not been able to confirm this information with New York State Police yet. 

UPDATE (3:45): According to a PennDOT alert, all lanes on US 15 northbound between the New York State Line and one mile south of the state line are closed due to police activity.

Additionally, the Pennsylvania State Police are reportedly investigating a hit and run that occurred around 7:00 this morning on Route 15 in North Lawrence. 

According to police, a man exited his parked tractor trailer to check it. As the man was walking along the white fog line, he was hit by a vehicle described as a dark colored vehicle, possibly an SUV. 

The vehicle will have front end damage and possibly a broken windshield. 

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Pennsylvania State Police in Mansfield. 

WENY News is working to confirm if this incident is related to the current incident on Route 15, due to the close proximity of both situations.

LINDLEY, N.Y. (WENY) -- Parts of Route 115 in Lindley are closed due to an ongoing police situation. 

There is also an ambulance on scene. 

We have a reporter on scene and are working on getting more information. We will provide any updates on air and online.
