BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The man involved in a police standoff in Bangor on the Fourth of July was supposed to be in court Friday. Officials say Perrin Oliver would not cooperate with his court-appointed lawyer, so his first appearance is rescheduled for Monday.

Police say Oliver is from Detroit, Michigan -- and he's been living at 47 Park Street in Bangor. Oliver allegedly began firing shots outside his window around 8:30 yesterday morning.

A tactical team was called in, the street was shut down and the Fourth of July parade was rerouted.

Oliver allegedly continued to fire his gun sporadically over the next four hours before police used tear gas to make him surrender. No one was hurt as a result of the standoff. In all, police say Oliver fired roughly 70 shots before he was taken into custody.
