Man facing gun charges after Mustang Acres incident

No one injured when shotgun fired at Mustang Acres residence on Tuesday

A 24-year-old man is facing numerous gun-related charges in connection with a shooting incident at Mustang Acres on Tuesday.

RCMP responded about 12:50 p.m. to a report that two shots had been fired in a residence in the area of 68th Street and 59th Avenue.

Two adults were in the residence when shotgun shots were fired from outside the front door. No one was injured.

Police said that the suspect and the occupants of the home were known to each other, and it was not a random incident.

Hol Dominick Garang has been charged with two counts of assault with a weapon and single charges of careless use of a firearm, using a firearm while committing an offence, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm knowing possession was unauthorized, possession of a firearm contrary to a prohibition order and mischief.

He made his first court appearance in Red Deer on Wednesday.
