PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (WHDH) – A large police response Friday afternoon in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, ended with the seizure of several weapons.
Police responded to Kearsarge Way after they said a mother called 911 to report her 44-year-old son was armed and wanted to be shot and killed by police.
A police negotiator was spotted at the scene. The area was blocked off and police asked residents to stay away. The situation ended peacefully after three hours of negotiations.
Several weapons, including two AR-15 rifles and three handguns, were reportedly seized.
Police said they knew the man as he has had issues with them in the past in New Hampshire and neighboring states. No charges have been filed.
