A Halifax man faces 11 charges after allegedly pointing a loaded crossbow at police officers who knocked on his door in response to a weapons call Thursday night.

Halifax Regional Police said officers went to a residence in the 7000 block of Quinpool Road shortly after 8 p.m. after a pizza delivery driver reported that a man had answered the door wearing a mask, with a rifle slung on his hip and two handguns on his waist.

When police attended the address and went to speak with the suspect, he came to the door pointing the crossbow.

Officers disarmed the man and there were no injuries, police said.

Adam Wayne Zinck, 40, is accused of assaulting a police officer with a weapon, using an imitation firearm in the commission of an indictable offence and four counts of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

He’s also charged with two counts of mischief and single counts of common nuisance endangering the safety of the public, possession of a prohibited weapon, and possession of a prohibited or restricted weapon without a licence.

The Crown opposed Zinck’s release when he appeared in Halifax provincial court Friday. He was remanded until Tuesday for a bail hearing.
