Associated Press Release
BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) -- A Tampa Bay area man was arrested after authorities say he fired a shotgun into a neighbor's home during a Thanksgiving gathering.
The Manatee County Sheriff's Office reports that 23-year-old Joshua Gennell was charged with two counts of attempted murder and several other charges. He was being held Friday without bail.
Gennell had apparently been a guest at the gathering but was asked to leave shortly after midnight Friday because of rude behavior and drinking. Deputies say Gennell went home and returned with a pump-action shotgun, which he fired into the air. When two men from the gathering confronted him, he reportedly shot at them and missed. Authorities say Gennell then walked up to a window and fired into the living room.
Gennell's brother managed to get the shotgun away from him and take him home, where deputies eventually found him.
No injuries were reported.
