Family sues Salem for return of guns after suicide

55-year-old Charles Hill barricaded himself inside his condemned house at 20 Irving St., started a fire and then fatally shot himself in the basement as the home burned. 

SALEM, N.H. - The town is fighting the estate of Charles Hill for several guns that they will use to pay off debts the late resident owed to the town, passing over an option that Hill's family argues would actually turn the town a profit.
