One of the two man arrested early Tuesday morning after bullets flew through a Red Deer mobile home park will remain in custody pending his next court appearance.

Mark Lavay, 39, has reserved his plea on weapons charges, including careless use of a rifle, careless storage of a rifle, unauthorized possession of a rifle, possession of rifle with an altered serial number and failure to comply with a probation order that he abstain from using alcohol and other intoxicants.

Lavay was arrested on Tuesday after Red Deer City RCMP were called to investigate reports of shots fired from inside a home at Mustang Acres.

Police allege that a number of bullets flew into neighbouring homes.

Lavay made his first court appearance on Wednesday and is to return to court on May 2 to enter a plea.

A second suspect arrested at the scene was later released and no charges are pending.
