Quincy police officer arrested after 4-hour standoff at Raynham home

RAYNHAM, Mass. (AP) — An 18-year veteran of the Quincy Police Department is facing charges after a four-hour standoff at his Raynham home during which at least two shots were fired.

Officers responded to Keith Wilbur’s home at about 10 p.m. Monday for a report of a domestic disturbance.

Police say while officers were talking to a woman in the home, two shots were fired through a door.

No one was hurt. Police removed about a dozen weapons from the home.

Police surrounded the house and neighbors were hold to stay inside.

Wilbur eventually surrendered peacefully at about 1 a.m. Tuesday.

Wilbur, 51, was off-duty at the time.

Quincy Chief Paul Keenan says Wilbur has been placed on administrative leave.

He faces arraignment Tuesday in Taunton District Court. It could not immediately be determined if he has a lawyer.
