His lawyer could not be reached for comment, but the MetroWest Daily News reported that he said in court that McNulty had been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder since an Army tour in Iraq.
Authorities in Framingham are crediting the brother of an armed man for distracting him when police arrived at his house, preventing the suspect from getting his gun after he had vowed to shoot police officers and go out “in a blaze of glory.”

Daniel R. McNulty was held without bail on domestic violence and firearms charges, after a hearing Thursday in Framingham District Court. His next court date is Jan. 19.

He was arrested early Wednesday after an incident that began as he allegedly fought with his girlfriend and a female roommate— kicking one in the stomach and holding another by the throat against a wall, a police report said. McNulty was reported to be intoxicated, officials said.

After struggling with the two women over a bottle of wine, a police report said, McNulty apologized to his girlfriend but continued to criticize the other woman.
