Woman walks into Connecticut police station and opens fire with a handgun

Security video shows a woman walk into a Connecticut police station and open fire before she’s taken into custody by officers, NBC Connecticut reported.

Suzanne Laprise, 51, entered the lobby of the Bristol Police Department on Thursday morning.

From NBC Connecticut:

In the video, Laprise walks up to the front lobby desk office windows and bangs on them with a gun. The front lobby desk was not occupied at the time.

After banging on the windows multiple times, the video shows Laprise firing multiple rounds into the windows. The bullets did not go through the bullet-resistant glass.

The video then shows Laprise walking around the lobby before officers attempted to talk to her.

During the interaction, authorities said Laprise fired additional rounds in the direction of the officers. One officer returned fire and fired two shots.

Once Laprise put the gun down, officers entered the lobby and used a stun gun on her. She was then taken into custody.

Laprise was charged with including criminal attempt to commit murder with special circumstances, carrying a firearm under the influence, unlawful discharge of a firearm, criminal use of a firearm, possession of a high capacity magazine, criminal mischief and breach of peace.
