False Alarm About Armed Intruder at NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital PDF Print Email


By Staff

Mar. 13, 2019:  According to Bronxville Chief of Police Christopher Satriale, at approximately 9:04 pm on Sunday, March 10, the Bronxville Police Department received a call from the nursing supervisor at NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital indicating that she had received a call from two patients on the sixth floor who said they had seen a gentleman on the floor approaching the elevators with a shotgun. 

Bronxville Police responded along with other local police from Tuckahoe, Eastchester, and Yonkers. The police interviewed the callers and the hospital staff and conducted multiple searches of the hospital. They did not find a person in the building with a gun. Police also reviewed video footage of the sixth floor and did not see a person with a gun in the footage. No shots were fired. According to Chief Satriale, “This was not a malicious call,” and the women “truly believe they saw a man with a weapon.”

In recounting the events at the hospital at the Monday Bronxville Village Board of Trustees meeting, Chief Satriale said that in a situation like this where it can be chaotic and there is limited and conflicting information, the best thing to do is to “shelter in place” until you hear more news. 

Satriale also acknowledged the “tremendous response” from other local police departments and was pleased with the efforts of the Bronxville Police Department. 

Satriale and his team will be conducting a review of the incident with the staff of the hospital and will recommend safety improvements.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
