EDEN — A suicide sometime between late Thursday night and early Friday morning brought a heavy police presence to Maple Avenue in the Town of Eden.

Eden police said a man killed himself before authorities, including the Erie County Sheriff’s Office, arrived at his home. Police said they were in communication with the man earlier and he said he wanted to be left alone.

Early reports suggested that there was a standoff between police and the man, but Eden police said that was not the case.
