Alleged drunk man fires off 'several rounds' in Pueblo


PUEBLO, Colo. (KKTV) - Police said a man walked away with a misdemeanor after he reportedly fired off multiple shots in Pueblo Saturday morning.

Officers were called out to E. 7th Street, just west of Troy. They said they received several calls about a shooting at 2:45 a.m.

Police searched the area, and were able to find where the gunfire came from. A man allegedly had been drinking, grabbed his pistol, and "cranked off several rounds" in his front yard.

The man didn't strike anything or anyone with the bullets, but officers did take away his gun to be used as evidence.

Police did not arrest the man because he was charged with a misdemeanor, Prohibited Use of a Weapon.
