Dalley Street open again after end of siege

DALLEY STREET in East Lismore has finally been opened again following the tragic end to a 40-hour siege this morning.

This should clear the way for residents to return to their homes for the first time since being evacuated on Wednesday afternoon.

The area was cordoned off for the best part of three days after a 33-year-old man barricaded himself inside with a gun.

Unfortunately police negotiators could not convince him to surrender his weapon and come out peacefully.

Eyewitnesses reported hearing a loud bang this morning and officers then entered the house to find the man deceased.

The Richmond Local Area Command announced Dalley St was opened again on its Facebook page.
