A hearing was held in provincial court in Corner Brook on Wednesday on an application brought forth by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police seeking an order to prohibit Robert Park from having in his possession any firearm, cross-bow, prohibited ammunition or explosive substance for a period of time not exceeding five years.

Park is the McIvers man who was involved in a standoff with police for nearly 28 hours in February 2017. The standoff started after police responded to a complaint that Park has threatened and assaulted another man.

When the standoff was over police found several firearms in Park’s house. He was found not criminally responsible for his crimes in August 2017 and is currently at the Waterford Hospital in St. John’s. Judge Kymil Howe will render her decision on the application on June 28.
