SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The Shasta County Sheriff's Office says one man has been arrested after he fired several shots into a home near the Win-River Casino.
Sergeant Jose Gonzalez says the first call came in just after 5 p.m. on Dec. 13 from a mom saying her son was shooting at her home on the west end of Redding Rancheria Road and was threatening to kill several people.
Gonzalez told Action News Now the man, who is in his 40s, was armed with what was reported as an AK-47.
As officers responded, Gonzalez says more calls came in reporting more shots had been fired.
After setting up a perimeter and closing off the area, Gonzalez says the man, who is not being identified at this time, came out of the home just a short time later after several public announcement calls and was taken into custody.
The sergeant said at this time, the department does not know how many shots were fired and they did not find bullet marks or holes into the home. There is also no motive yet to the firing.
Gonzalez added the man will face several charges, though he did not specify what those would be.
It is unknown if the man lived in the home.
The Shasta County Sheriff's Office, the California Highway Patrol and the Anderson Police Department all responded to the scene.
The area was reopened after about an hour and the sergeant says no one was injured.
