A father entered the Greater Nashua Supervised Visitation Center with a loaded firearm in his briefcase but was arrested before ever seeing his child.

“All (he) had to do was pull the trigger,” Nashua police Captain Kerry Baxter testified before lawmakers Tuesday in Concord.

The incident was not the first of its kind for the visitation center, which shuttered in December 2017 due to financial hardship. Baxter also recalled the time a father arrived for a supervised visit with a knife on a lanyard around his neck. Security stopped him at the front door.
