MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Students at three Milford schools will return to class Wednesday following a lockdown on Tuesday.
Police say a suicidal gunman near Eisenhower Park forced Mathewson School, Orange Avenue School and Platt Technical High school to shut down for the safety of the students. Eisenhower Park, as well as the attached facilities, dog park, and trails off of West River Street were also closed.
Local and state police were in contact with the emotionally disturbed person for several hours. Police say the emotionally disturbed person owned guns and had a gun with him, which prompted the lock downs.
The man later died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
