Nearly 2-day police standoff continues in Milford

A nearly 48-hour police standoff is still going on in Milford.
Police responded to the home on Bridgeport Avenue after they say a man with possible mental health issues was refusing to come out.
They say officers on Wednesday observed the subject through the window with what appeared to be a shotgun or another type of long gun.
Police say the man claimed his landlord locked him inside the home following a dispute, so he told police he shot at the lock with a gun.
As of 5 p.m. Thursday, cars were still allowed to drive on Bridgeport Avenue, but when News 12 Connecticut tried to park in front of the home, we were told to leave for safety reasons. Other people in the area were also told to not walk in front of the home on Thursday.
A warrant has been issued for the man's arrest.
Police have cut off his electricity and gas in an effort to get him out of the house.
Police have tried to communicate with the man via a PA system but have only heard noises inside the home.
Police say since he is not a threat to himself or the public, they are taking their time to get him out of the home.
