According to police radio transmissions, that relative called police at 10:20 a.m. The family member told police the man does have firearms in the home.

A SWAT team was brought into the neighborhood, according to witnesses, but police said there is no danger to the public.

Pillsbury Road was reopened about 2:30 p.m., but Currier Drive will still be closed for an active police investigation.

Students at Moose Hill, Matthew Thornton, Londonderry Middle and Londonderry High School were being told by school officials to stay inside. Officers are also telling neighbors at the scene to stay inside.

Because Pillsbury Road was closed, afternoon kindergarten students arriving by bus could not access Moose Hill and were dropped off at Matthew Thornton and walked to their school by faculty and staff, said Londonderry Superintendent Nate Greenberg.

"All of these actions were precautionary in nature," Londonderry Superintendent Nate Greenberg said.

Greenberg said parents of students on bus routes affected by related road closures are being contacted directly about making alternative arrangements to get children home.
