East Hampton Police report that on Thursday, March 8, they responded to a call from a distraught mother of two children who said she was locked in a bedroom in order to protect them from her husband, Kevin Supinski.

Police report that Supinski, who had allegedly fired a shotgun in the basement of the home, was taken into custody “at gunpoint.”

Supinski, 33, of 5 Abbey Road, East Hampton was arrested and charged with:

  • Unlawful Discharge of a Firearm
  • Criminal Possession of a Firearm
  • Reckless Endangerment 1st Degree
  • Risk of Injury to a Minor
  • Disorderly Conduct

According to police, they received a call at 9:14 p.m. from Supinski’s wife, Nicole Supinski, who reported that the couple had argued and that her husband went into the basement of the residence.

Police say she locked herself in an upstairs bedroom with their two small children, ages 2-1/2 and 8 months, and that while police were en route, she reported that she heard a gunshot downstairs.

Police say that when they arrived, Kevin Supinski had gone back upstairs and was trying to get into the locked bedroom.

Officers Adam Brault, John Wilson, and Sgt. Michael Green then forced entry into the home and took Kevin Supinski into custody “at gunpoint.”

Police say Supinski was unarmed when he was apprehended and he was arrested without further incident.

According to the police statement, “Subsequent investigation revealed that Kevin Supinski had intentionally fired one round with a 16-gauge shotgun in the basement of the residence. The round struck a concrete foundation wall and no injuries were sustained by anyone.”

The shotgun and several other “long guns” and one revolver were seized from the residence by police.

Kevin Supinski, who police say is a convicted felon, was held on a $100,000 bond and will be arraigned in Middlesex Superior Court on Friday, March 9, 2012.

    He is a good man, please don’t assume everything that you read. This story was blown out of proportion, he was not threatening his family. He would never do anything to harm any of them. Please don’t assume because you are reading this that he is a bad person, he is not!!
