Woman arrested after gunshots fired in Connecticut police station. Bulletproof glass stopped them

BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — Authorities say a woman is under arrest after she fired several gunshots inside a Connecticut police station. Police say the shooting happened just after 10:30 p.m. Thursday when a woman entered the lobby of the Bristol Police Department and fired several shots at the front desk window. The front desk was unoccupied and the gunshots did not penetrate the window’s bullet-resistant glass. Officers responded and tried to negotiate with the woman but she fired more shots and one officer to return fire, police said. The shots were again stopped by bulletproof glass. Police used a stun gun to subdue the woman and she was arrested.
