They say a bullet that struck the neighbor’s window went through the glass, into the residence, and exited the other side of the residence through the siding

Police say during the investigation, 80-year-old Robert Bailey barricaded himself inside the camp and fired several rounds from his rifles at the officers.

Members of the State Police Crisis Negotiations Unit responded and during the negotiations, and police say Bailey continued to fire several more rounds from the residence toward officers.
