MANSFIELD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man has been arrested while recovering in a hospital after a shootout with police.
State Police say 64-year-old David Rawlinson faces charges stemming from a Dec. 19 domestic dispute that sparked the initial police response as well as for the ensuing gunfire.
He was arraigned Thursday and placed into custody on a $5.1 million bond. It couldn’t be immediately determined if Rawlinson had a lawyer.
State Police say they received a call that Rawlinson was threatening to shoot a woman over things she had posted on Facebook and that he had a shotgun and was prepared to shoot any police that responded.
