On Feb. 9 at 1:06 p.m., police received a 9-1-1 call reporting that a shot had been fired into a house on Gilpin Road.
“Upon attendance it was learned that a Grand Forks male had arrived at that location and shot a .357 magnum revolver at the house,” said Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison of the Grand Forks RCMP detachment. “The bullet penetrated through the outside wall and into the house.”
The bullet was recovered on scene by police. A subsequent investigation located the subject, who was arrested, said Harrison.
“The suspect has since been charged with several weapons offences, the most serious being the discharge of a restricted firearm at a place, in other words a house,” said Harrison.
Police recovered a .357 magnum Dan Wesson six-shot revolver, which was loaded.
There were people in the house but no one was injured, said Harrison.
Arrested was 21-year-old Kyle LaFond of Grand Forks. LaFond is facing several weapons charges including discharge of a restricted firearm at a house.
He is currently out on bail with conditions, awaiting an appearance in court for a plea.
