LEE, N.H. (CBS) – An armed particular person put shops within the Market Basket Plaza in Lee, New Hampshire on lockdown noon Saturday.
Police had been summoned to the scene simply earlier than midday amid calls about 27-year-old Gordon Falt firing a gun into the air within the car parking zone.
After refusing to give up to police, officers created a fringe round Falt. He ultimately surrendered and was taken into police custody round 1:30 p.m.
“”We’re simply grateful that nobody’s damage,” mentioned Lee Police Lt. Donald Laliberte Saturday afternoon. “It was actually a textbook ending that this ended with nobody else being damage. That space could be very busy right now.”
Lt. Laliberte says Falt was touring from his home in Bar Harbor, Maine, and was planning on heading to Maryland. The explanation for his journey remains to be unknown.
There have been no accidents within the incident.
