    Police could be seen gathered in a parking lot.

    UPDATE: Police revealed details about how former Lower Providence police officer Charles Murray allegedly admitted to stealing an M16 rifle and ammo from his former patrol car the day before the standoff.


    Police descended on a Montgomery County community Wednesday morning, focusing on a parking lot next to a church.

    Officers could be seen in the area of St. Teresa of Avila at Parkview Drive and Trooper Road in Norristown around 8:30 a.m. SkyForce10 captured police gathered in the parking lot.

    A former suburban police officer was holed up in the church, law enforcement sources said.

    The standoff ended when the former officer came out without incident after about an hour, police said.

    No one at the church answered the phone Wednesday morning.
