Police seize guns from Barrington home following 911 call

Police say man later transported to hospital

Posted

Barrington Police received a 911 call at about 12:35 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 20, regarding a suspicious condition at a Sowams area home — the caller told police his father would not turn over his rifle to him.

Police officers responded to the home and saw a man sitting on the front steps. The man was the homeowners’ son and had recently been living out of state. Police noticed the rifle was resting on the steps next to the man; police said there was a red gun lock threaded through the handle.

Police said the man went inside the home shortly after they arrived — officers were able to speak with the man and calm him down, as he appeared agitated when they first arrived.

Police said there was a protective order issued against the man in another state. EMTs later transported the man to a hospital for evaluation. Police seized two guns from the home.
