Standoff in Breckenridge results in school lock-out before peaceful ending
September 18, 2017
A police standoff in Breckenridge on Monday morning, Sept. 18, that shut down several blocks and put a school on lock out ended peacefully with the arrest of 27-year-old Kyle Kenczewicz, police confirmed in a news release.
The Breckenridge Police Department initially responded to a call at 206 S. Ridge Street that possibly involved a weapon, the release said. Ridge Street was closed off from Washington to Lincoln avenues while police responded, and Breckenridge Elementary was placed on lock out for an hour-and-a-half because of its proximity to the call.
Classes continued as usual but the building was secured and no one was allowed to enter, a Summit School District spokeswoman confirmed.
Kenczewicz was arrested and charged with menacing, a class-five felony; harassment, a class-three misdemeanor and disorderly conduct, a petty offense. He is due in Summit County Court for advisement on Tuesday, Sept. 19.
