By From page A3 | February 07, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A Fairfield man who was arrested Tuesday after a seven-hour police stand-off at his Cormorant Court home pleaded not guilty Thursday to felony charges of assault with a firearm and threatening police.

Gordon K. Johnson, 27, was ordered to remain in jail with bail set at $60,000. He is scheduled to be back in court Feb. 18  for a probable cause hearing.

Johnson’s family fled their home Tuesday afternoon after Johnson allegedly threatened them with a rifle. Police surrounded the house after Johnson refused to come out of the house or to talk with police. Police entered the house and arrested Johnson after several canisters of tear gas were fired into the home.

Johnson, an ex-con with a long history of serious mental health problems, is legally barred from possessing firearms.
