METHUEN - The Lawrence Marine who fired a shotgun into a crowd of noisy clubgoers in Lawrence last year wants to buy the shuttered Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church on Union Street.
Daniel Cotnoir, a mortician, would turn the three-building campus - a church, school and convent - into a funeral home, he said.
Cotnoir, 34, lives above his business, the Racicot Funeral Home at 256 Broadway in Lawrence. He wants to sell the building and leave Lawrence, calling the city unsafe.
"Considering the fact that the Police Department cannot or will not protect my family, as soon as possible I want to be out of the city of Lawrence," Cotnoir said.
The Marine sergeant was found not guilty in June of firing a 12-gauge shotgun into a crowded Lawrence parking lot last summer just before 3 a.m., wounding two Lowell residents. The jury decided that it was self-defense.

Wonder if we had more like him in our Country the rate of uncivil behaviour would plummet.
Glad he was not found guilty.
Sounds like a good plan. I wish him well.
