Deputies with the York County Sheriff’s Office, Maine State Police and the York County’s version of a SWAT team responded to the area, secured a perimeter and attempted to talk with Rossetti, who was inside a home on Lords Road.

Rossetti surrendered peacefully to officers around 3:45 p.m. and was transported to York County Jail. Bail for Rossetti had not been set by Wednesday evening.
