Investigators say they found multiple weapons inside McCallion’s home, including an AR-14 assault rifle.
"We've got some concerns in addition to the assault that took place, we found him in possession of a number of firearms inside his home. So we're going to be looking into who owned them. They were laid out as if someone may have intended to use them,” says Chief Kevin Sylvester.
McCallion faces a variety of felony charges including criminal possession of a weapon and possession of high capacity magazines for rifles. Investigators say Mccallion also has one prior drug conviction.
Police told News 12 that McCallion was acting strange in the days leading up to the attack and that they were called to the Avalon Apartments several times.
