Carson City Deputy Sheriff’s were called Tuesday to a residence at 4429 Morgan Mill Road where a drunk male had a gun and was firing off shots. His grandmother ran into her bedroom, closed and locked the door and laid flat on the floor in order to avoid flying bullets. One bullet lodged in a neighbor’s outbuilding.
The grandmother called 9-1-1. Sheriff’s deputies raced to the scene along with the CCSO SWAT Team. Sheriff’s deputies ordered the man outside. The man came out with a pistol barrel pointed at his head. Deputies say the man was very uncooperative so deputies took him down with a bean bag gun. He was quickly subdued.
After an ambulance ride to the hospital suspect Chris Conti was determined to have a blood alcohol level over three times the minimum level for presumed intoxication. Once determined to be OK deputies transported Conti to the Carson City Jail where he was charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and Domestic Battery. His bail was set at $27,000.
