YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A frantic girlfriend’s call sent the Bergen County Police SWAT team to a Park Ridge home tonight, but a reportedly suicidal young man who lives there came out and was taken away by Tri-Boro Ambulance, CLIFFVIEW PILOT has learned.

The couple, in the middle of a breakup, were chatting on a webcam when the South Maple Street man said he was going to kill himself, the girlfriend told police.

He then walked back and forth in front of the web cam, loading and unloading a gun, she said.

Police said she told them he also may have been inhaling from an aerosol can.

Morristown police immediately called Bergen County’s Central Dispatch Center, which notified Park Ridge authorities.

They called in the SWAT team.

The man walked out around 7:45 p.m. and was put into the ambulance ( photo, above ). The SWAT call was cancelled.

The young man’s father told police there was a replica weapon in the house. It was immediately unclear whether that was seized.
