RAYNHAM, Mass. (AP) - An 18-year veteran of the Quincy Police Department is facing charges after a four-hour standoff at his Raynham home during which at least two shots were fired.

Officers responded to Keith Wilbur’s home Monday night for a report of a domestic disturbance.

Police say while officers were talking to a woman inside, two shots were fired through a door.

No one was hurt.

Police surrounded the house. Neighbors were told to stay inside.

Wilbur eventually surrendered peacefully at about 1 a.m. Tuesday.

The 51-year-old Wilbur was off-duty at the time. He has been placed on administrative leave.

The Patriot Ledger reports Wilbur was ordered held without bail in District Court Tuesday.

According to the newspaper, his attorney says Wilbur should receive treatment, not jail time, and he’s upset about his actions.
