Newmarket man held on $100K bail reportedly contemplated police shootout
Matthew Henderson, 38, of 6 Salmon St., Newmarket, was arraigned on felony reckless conduct charges at Candia District Court Monday after he reportedly admitted that he fired a "high-powered rifle" into a wooded area around 6:27 a.m. Friday. His probable cause affidavit indicates he told police he was shooting at a groundhog, though no dead animal or blood was found in area.
According to that paperwork, concerned friends and family members have prompted police to periodically check on Henderson's well-being. It further states:
"On 1-12-14, Henderson told a friend, via text message, he had eight magazines loaded with armor piercing ammunition and that if police came to his house one more time, it would end in a shootout."
Candia District Court Justice David G. LeFrancios, citing a "substantial risk to community safety" increased cash bail from $7,500 to $100,000, with restrictions that Henderson refrain from possessing a firearm, destructive device, dangerous weapon and ammunition. He also is required to abstain from use of alcohol, controlled substances and narcotic drugs.
Court documents reveal eight .357 SIG shell casings were found on Henderson's back porch, and another 10 casings were found inside the residence. Forty-one bullet holes were found in the fireplace, and a .177 caliber pellet rifle was located inside on the living room couch.
The other suspect in Friday's incident was Stephen Givens Jr., 25, of New Berwick, Maine, who was not arraigned Monday with Henderson. Givens reportedly told police Henderson fired approximately 10 rounds for no legitimate reason, though Givens also admitted to firing two shots, himself, from a handgun.
