AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) — Amherst police and SWAT team members were seen investigating on Bailey Avenue for much of Wednesday morning.

There, as officials tried to communicate with someone inside a home, the stretch of road between Longmeadow and Eggert remained closed. After getting into the residence around 11 a.m., police say a man was found dead in the home’s garage.

The whole situation began around 4 a.m. Later in the morning, police had warned people to stay away from the area while they investigated on the street’s 4300 block. At the time, they noted that the public was not in any kind of danger.
