Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to 864 South Saliman on a report of one roommate holding a rifle, pointing it at the other, ordering him to move out. The victim said he was terrified and that his assailant grabbed his cellphone and wallet.
Somehow the victim managed to summon law enforcement who arrived to find gunman John Shelly with a rifle in his hands, wrapped in a blanket. Deputies quickly disarmed Shelly and cuffed him up.
The reason for the confrontation was not revealed in the criminal complaint. Shelly was jailed on $60,000 bail for Robbery and Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
