MANSFIELD, Ohio – Police say the home where an Ohio man was fatally shot by officers after a 26-hour standoff contained loaded assault weapons, ammunition and survivalist bags with food and medical supplies.
Mansfield police said Wednesday the items were found during an initial assessment of the home where 58-year-old David Parker was shot by an officer last week to end the daylong standoff.
The Mansfield News Journal reports (http://ohne.ws/1H1fPvd ) other items found in the home include a bulletproof vest, handcuffs, helmets, knives and igniters.
The confrontation began April 27 when a gas utility worker called 911 after the resident came to the door with an assault rifle. Officials say Parker fired at officers the next morning as the standoff continued, prompting law enforcement to fire back. He died a short time later.
