Police in #WestHartford continue to bring out weapons and ammunition from a house where a man barricades himself inside last night. We’ve seen 8 long guns, 2 pistols, 2 crossbows, 2 bump stocks, a spear, and what I can only call a medieval mace. pic.twitter.com/d3UVGZB5M5— Kent Pierce (@kentpierce8) August 13, 2018
