UPDATE: Police said alcohol, argument led Nashua man to fire a gun in his home
NASHUA - Neighbors were shocked Monday night when their street was turned into a crime scene.
Police wearing bullet-proof vests arriving in half-a-dozen cruisers descended on March Street when a man being served with a restraining order decided to unload his gun in his home.
According to police, David Ouellette was being served with the restraining order after he allegedly beat a woman while drunk Saturday night. The woman called police Saturday night to report the incident and told police he had guns in the house.
When police arrived Monday night to serve him with a restraining order, that's when Ouellette began firing.
"We hear three shots - bang, bang, bang" said Charles Juris, a resident of the street for 30 years.
Police said Ouellette fire off several rounds and officers set up a perimeter.
"Police in bushes, police in the corner of the blue house over there" said Juris, pointing to a house across the street and describing what the scene looked like. "They said to us get inside the house, lay down and stay away from the windows."
According to police documents, Ouellette destroyed the kitchen table and put bullet holes in the TV and a gun cabinet. Police said he didn't stop there. He also drove his truck into the garage door. Neighbors who know the couple say they have lived their for about three years and have never seen or heard anything like this before.
"They're just normal people" said one neighbor.
No one was injured and after a long standoff, Ouellette turned himself in.
Ouellette is facing multiple charges, he is being held on $150,000 cash bail and is scheduled for a court hearing May 26.
