The 67-year-old mother of a Dudley, Mass., man refused to give him money for alcohol, so he allegedly assaulted her with nunchakus Monday, according to WCVB Boston.

Thirty-one-year-old Christopher Walker went on a rampage inside of his home, damaging property in the process. Eventually, the nunchakus hit his mother on the left side of her head. Walker’s mother was treated at a neighbor’s house before fire department personnel released her, WCVB reports.

Upon arriving to Walker’s residence, Walker’s pit bull ran to the door and nearly bit the officer there. Walker then slammed the door shut and locked it. As more officers arrived, several homes nearby were evacuated and a SWAT team was notified as precautions.

At one point, police saw Walker outside, wearing a red bandanna over his face along with a camouflage jacket. Walker said at one point that he wanted to die.

Walker then attempted to indicate to police that he had a gun, suggestively opening and closing his jacket and raising his pants legs. At this point, the officers on the scene tried to coerce him into surrendering. Walker refused and went back inside.

Shortly afterwards, Walker returned outside with a handgun. Walker positioned the gun towards cops on the other side of the street. An officer responded by firing three shots. Walker then retreated back inside of his home.

After 20 minutes passed, Webster, Mass., police lieutenant Michael Shaw managed to call Walker. Shaw convinced Walker to surrender. Walker appeared to have some minor injuries, according to police.

Upon searching the home, officers found a variety of weapons and a ballistic vest. Walker was not licensed to own a gun.

Walker was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault on a police officer, among other charges.
