Dispatch received several calls of shots fired. When officers arrived they found several persons drinking including Bryson Lance (4/7/86). Witnesses told police that Lance had been outside on the porch with his 4-year-old son, loud and intoxicated. A neighbor asked him to stop being loud and that maybe he should take his son inside. Angry and upset with the neighbor, Lance went inside and came back out with a shotgun, firing it several times. No one was struck. Lance was booked on several charges including child endangerment. Division of Child and Family Services was notified and the child was taken to the Christmas Box House Shelter for kids.
