Concord police have lifted a shelter-in-place order after shots were fired and a man was taken into custody at a house this morning, neighbors and police said. Neighbors heard gunshots at approximately 8:15 a.m., said Lisa Feilbach, who lives on Lexington Road near Blackfield Drive. A neighbor closer to the scene told Feilbach that Concord police brought a SWAT team in an armored car, which drove up onto the lawn of the home.

Police arrested a man who emerged from the home and took him away in an ambulance, according to Feilbach. Feilbach, a stay-at-home mom, was at home with her 4-year-old when she received a message from Concord police to stay indoors and to keep doors and windows shut.

“It’s a little bit scary, hearing that phone call,” she said, adding that she obeyed the order until she saw other neighbors outside, talking with police. Police sent out automated phone calls at about 10 a.m. saying that the shelter-in-place order had been lifted, but the department has not yet confirmed what prompted the order.
