November 4, 2016
The Park City Police Department in late October arrested a man suspected of firing two shotgun rounds on a heavily developed street in Prospector.
Rob McKinney, a sergeant, said the police were called to the 2000 block of Sidewinder Drive at approximately 1 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29 after the department received multiple reports from people in the neighborhood saying they heard the sound of gunshots.
Responding officers arrived at a house in the vicinity of the gunshots and found a man inside who appeared to be intoxicated, McKinney said. He said the man is also the one who is believed to have fired the gun. McKinney said the police seized a shotgun at the scene.
McKinney said the man likely fired the gun from the entrance to a basement. The rounds hit a wooden gate at the house. Nobody was injured.
McKinney said the police arrested a 23-year-old man on five preliminary charges – intoxication, reckless endangerment, possessing a firearm while intoxicated, disorderly conduct and firing a weapon inside the Park City limits.
