A Bangor man accused of firing shots from an apartment window, forcing the city’s Fourth of July parade to be rerouted, has been ordered held on $100,000 bail. Police said Perrin Oliver, 43, sent a woman and child fleeing from his apartment Thursday and then fired about 70 shots during a four-hour standoff before a tactical team used tear gas to take him into custody. Perrin, who made his initial court appearance Monday through video conference from jail, is charged with criminal threatening and aggravated reckless conduct with a firearm. No one was hurt in the standoff. But one person was killed on the rerouted parade route.
