Neighbors say son would fly into rages as 86-year-old father stayed silent

Police say Nolan fatally shot Brentwood officer Steve Arkell on Monday when he responded to a domestic disturbance call at 46 Mill Pond Road.
“I think he was a troubled soul,” Susan Maguire said of Michael, who police say perished in the fire that started after the shooting. The Nolans had lived in the 55-and-older community about 3 and 1/2 years — six months before the Maguires moved in on the other side of the duplex.
“I didn’t hear him on a daily basis, but when I heard him he was quite angry and I never heard Walter saying a word,” she said.
They then encountered an enraged Michael Nolan, who was waiting in the house and saw that the dog was wet.
The Maguires said they got along well with Walter Nolan, but barely spoke to Michael Nolan. They said he was introverted and kept to himself.
When the incident began on Monday, she was across the street at a neighbor’s house. Her husband had gone to a local grocery store.
“I was across the street — thank God — and thank God my husband wasn’t there,” she said.
After the fire started, James Maguire returned but was kept back by police. He eventually reunited with his wife and they could be seen walking arm-in-arm across a field as dense smoke billowed from the duplex they called home. James Maguire reached over to comfort his wife, who was distraught after losing all of their possessions and two cats. The Maguires are now living with a relative in Stratham.
“They are just possessions,” he said. “We got out quite OK and everything is all right. It will work its way out sometime.”
