Police arrest New Hampshire man after day-long standoff
CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) — Police in New Hampshire have detained a 55-year-old man after a daylong standoff that started with reports of shots fired in a Claremont neighborhood.
WMUR-TV reports Michael Burns was detained Thursday afternoon following the standoff with police that lasted for much of the day and prompted the evacuation of several neighbors. Burns was reportedly barricaded in the home and Claremont police say he fired up to 100 shots. No one was hurt.
Police said Burns was wanted on outstanding warrants for simple assault and criminal threatening. More charges are expected.
The incident began after 6 a.m. with reports of shots fired and was followed about two hours later with an order for residents to shelter in place. The shelter in place order was lifted in the afternoon.
It is unclear if Burns has a lawyer.
