RumsonshootingPolice on the scene at 7 Ridge Road this morning. 

A SWAT team was mobilized and at least one Rumson home was evacuated this morning after reports of shots being fired in a residential neighborhood of Rumson. 

Authorities aren't yet talking on the record. But sources tell redbankgreen that the alleged shooter is in custody after leaving the scene.

An earlier report said police were checking area hospitals and searching locally for a man with a possible gunshot wound.

Sources say the suspect is the same well-armed man whose distraught condition led authorities to surround his Ridge Road home in February.

In that incident, 49-year-old Seth Kronengold was charged with possession of an illegal assault rifle. A relative had called police in concern for his mental state over tax issues and the loss of his car in a repossession.
