A Glen Cove man was charged with criminal weapon possession, resisting arrest and endangering the welfare of a child, according to reports.

On Wednesday, police received a 1:30 a.m. call from the man’s wife, who said she feared “there will be a massacre” if police didn’t come to her house, News12 reported. The couple had been arguing.

When police arrived at the couple's Glen Cove Avenue home, they found the 29-year-old husband loading a shotgun in an upstairs bedroom, while the couple’s three children, ages four, three and one, were in the same house, asleep, Newsday reported.

Police tackled and arrested the man, charging him with criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

 “This incident could have quickly turned into a tragedy without the quick thinking and bravery of these two officers,” according to a press release from Glen Cove Police.  

He was scheduled for arraignment Wednesday.
