Bradenton, FL- Manatee County deputies arrest a 65 year old man who they say fired a gun into home over night.

It happened just after 10 p.m. Thursday night at the 6500 block of 3rd Ave. NE.  Deputies say witnesses called authorities to report Howard Walls, who was standing outside a vacant home and shooting into the windows.

When deputies arrived they found Walls standing in the front yard, and ordered him to drop the gun multiple times before he did so.  Three windows to the home were found smashed out and one round had been fired into the wall of the home.

Walls told Deputies he came over to the residence looking for someone who owed him $30. Walls told Deputy Lake he smashed the windows and fired inside to "get their attention".
