On Monday, police said he was released from the hospital over the weekend and was given a $25,000 bond. He is set to appear in court on November 29.

Howlett, 63, was the subject of an outstanding arrest and search warrants at his home on 16 Tristian Ct. in Wethersfield. He was wanted on the charge of violation of a protective order, police said.

The Wethersfield Police Department was requested by the East Hampton Police Department to assist in serving the warrants on Friday. While attempting to serve the warrants, police said there were indications that Howlett was inside the home, however, he did not respond to the officers on scene. The WPD called in CREST for assistance.

Residents in the area were either evacuated or asked to shelter in place. Prospect Street was blocked from Ridge Road to Willow Street.

Throughout Friday evening and into Saturday morning, members of CREST and the Newington Police Department attempted to make contact with Howlett and have him exit the home. They were unsuccessful.

Neighbors reported hearing gunshots and officers attempting to speak with a man barricaded inside the home.

“I would say we have her 25 gunshots and right now there is what looks like a dumpster and it’s green and we think that’s bomb squad, and it’s where they put the bomb after they get it,” said neighbor Steve Kirsche.

The immediate area of 16 Tristian Ct. will have an active police presence, however, the area of Prospect Street is currently open, police said.

Wethersfield police thanked the public for their patience during the incident.
