LONDONDERRY - A Winding Pond Road man was arrested Sunday for felony reckless conduct and resisting arrest following a standoff with police at his residence.

A gunshot at 64 Winding Pond Road was reported about 11:22 a.m. and 10 town police officers raced to the scene.

There, police found Feliciano Sanchez, 28, armed, suicidal and barricaded in a basement.

“The shot was fired after a husband-and-wife argument,” said Det. Christopher Olson of the Londonderry police. “The round was not fired directly at anybody, but it was fired in a reckless manner.”

Olson said there was a young child inside the residence at the time, but the incident occurred in the basement and the child was not near Sanchez when the gun was fired.

The Southern New Hampshire Special Operations Unit arrived and made contact with Sanchez.

“They began a negotiation process and the situation was resolved without further incident,” Olson said. “It was less than an hour.”

Sanchez was taken into custody without incident and is being held at Rockingham County jail in Brentwood on $5,000 cash-only bail pending arraignment Tuesday in Rockingham County Superior Court.

No injuries were reported.
