Local man arrested for accidentally discharging shotgun

Posted: April 14, 2012 - 2:03pm  |  Updated: April 14, 2012 - 11:09pm

Police say a Juneau man was arrested early Saturday morning after inadvertently discharging a 12-gauge shotgun into the air while trying to unload the weapon.

Caleb Smith, 21, was arrested on suspicion of two counts of fourth-degree weapons misconduct and taken to jail, police said in a release.

Police said they received a report of a single gun shot in the area of Franklin and Second Streets at about 2:10 a.m.

Seconds after receiving the report, officers contacted Smith walking on Franklin carrying two rifles and a pistol, the release states.

Further investigation found he was under the influence of alcohol and inadvertently discharged the weapon, police say.

Online court records indicate Smith does not have a criminal history.
