Standoff ends with $250,000 bail for officer


McKEON 

NASHUA - A Billerica, Mass., man was arrested Thursday evening after a standoff with police at the Radisson Hotel on Tara Boulevard in Nashua.

Gary McKeon, 47, of 23 Kenmar Drive, was arraigned Friday on four counts of reckless conduct and one count of criminal threatening. McKeon is a detective with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. The MBTA said he has been on leave since his December arrest on a charge of domestic assault involving his girlfriend, according to reports.

Family members asked police to check on McKeon, who reportedly made suicidal and threatening comments. He was reported to be intoxicated and carrying a gun, according to police.

More than 10 officers arrived at the hotel around 3:10 p.m., according to Lt. Michael Moushegian of the Nashua Police Department.

"We took the precaution of establishing a perimeter and initiating contact with Mr. McKeon," Moushegian said.

The floor was cleared of people and officers remained outside of the room for several hours. McKeon was arrested at 10:45 p.m.

"He came out, he was taken into custody, and nobody was hurt," Moushegian said.

Police found evidence that four rounds had been discharged in the room but there was no indication McKeon was attempting to shoot at police, Moushegian said. The evidence led to four reckless conduct charges. McKeon was also charged with criminal threatening for allegedly pointing a gun towards members of the Nashua Police Special Reaction Team.

McKeon was being held on $250,000 cash only bail. He is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing Feb. 25.
