SWAT team storms apartment

Man taken into custody at Beverly senior complex


“SWAT officers were able to place a camera under the door to see that Gallagher was sitting in a chair placed against the door and waited for him to move away so they could safely enter,” said Costa.

The Beverly Fire Department simultaneously put a ladder up to his apartment window.

Costa said that at about 2 p.m., officers saw Gallagher get up from the chair and walk across the apartment. Police then stormed inside.

Gallagher was still holding the knife. He again refused orders to drop it and came at the officers in a threatening manner, Costa said, so they used a Taser on him and took him into custody.
