Niagara Gazette — Brighton and Sheridan Park firefighters were able to set up a ladder to hose water on the home, and later approached the structure from Fries Road. But by the afternoon, the home had become a pile of ashes.
The school and residential lockdowns were lifted at 1 p.m, but police later delayed the dismissal of Edison Elementary, Franklin Middle and Kenmore East schools. Meanwhile, a SWAT team searched the a nearby Mayville Avenue home for Hollywood. The team left the home empty handed, and at 4 p.m., the students were allowed to leave.
Not long after, Hollywood was found dead in the basement, where, according to neighbors, he kept an arsenal of weapons.
