An Ohsweken man is facing an attempted murder charge after firing a rifle at a neighbour’s home on June 14, according to a media release issued by Six Nations Police.
Officers responded to a call reporting that an intoxicated man was shooting at a residence and arrested the suspect without incident.
Police seized multiple rounds of .22 calibre ammunition and two rifles from the kitchen of the accused’s home.
Investigators say the man was at his neighbour’s home earlier in the day and was asked to leave following a disturbance. He threatened to get his gun as he left the home.
Police say the neighbours heard gunshots shortly after and witnessed the suspect aiming and shooting a firearm in the direction of their front porch.
The neighbour’s wife and three children went into the basement to take cover.
A 46-year-old Six Nations man is charged with attempted murder, careless use of a firearm, pointing a firearm, assault and uttering threats.
