HUDSON – A Hudson man was held on $150,000 bail Friday after police accused him of threatening a woman with a handgun and then firing the gun into a nearby apartment with three people inside.

Police arrested Joshua Griffin, 34, of 9B Bockes Road, on Thursday evening after being called to the home shortly after 6:30 p.m. for a report of shots fired. They found that a gun had been fired from inside the apartment and through a wall separating it from 9A Bockes Road, police said.

Griffin had fled the home before officers arrived and a K-9 officer was used to find him near Hopkins Drive. Police also used a reverse 911 call to alert neighbors, police said.

Griffin was arraigned at Nashua district court on Friday morning on seven felony counts, including three counts of reckless conduct, one for each of the residents of 9A Bockes Road. He also is facing felony criminal threatening and criminal restraint charges alleging he pointed the gun at a woman in his apartment and stopped her from leaving, plus falsifying physical evidence, felon in possession of a deadly weapon and resisting arrest, a misdemeanor, according to the charges read in court Friday.

Police searched 9B Bockes Road, but have not released what, if anything, they found there.

Hudson police prosecutor Joseph Tessier told a judge that Griffin already has a violent criminal record, including assault and resisting arrest, and that he told officers he planned to kill himself.

Judge Thomas Bamberger ordered Griffin held on $150,000 cash-only bail and scheduled his arraignment for Aug. 13.
