A Storm Lake man faces numerous charges after police were dispatched late Sunday night to an apartment complex at 1008 East Milwaukee Avenue to investigate a disturbance with shots fired.
Officers were told a verbal dispute occurred between two men, who walked outside into the parking area. Thirty-one year-old William Ford of Storm Lake allegedly displayed a handgun towards the other man. The second man fled and at some point Ford allegedly fired the handgun. Ford then fled from the scene in a vehicle prior to the arrival of police. Officers located and seized one 40-caliber cartridge from the parking area in front of the apartment building. No one was struck by the gunfire.
A short time later police located the vehicle Ford fled in at the rear of a residence at 713 Ontario Street. At about 4:30 Monday morning, the police entry team searched the house, where they found Ford and took him into custody. During the search, police seized two weapons and ammunition.
