A Sioux Falls man fired a gun at a vehicle driving by his house Monday night, police say.

Edward Lavette Williams, 47, was arrested and charged with reckless discharge of a firearm after he fired a gun several times at a vehicle driving by his house around midnight Monday, said police spokesman Sam Clemens.

Williams thought the vehicle was suspicious because he had noticed it’d driven by his house on the 6400 block of West Grove Place a few times without its lights on, Clemens said. He then went outside and waited for the vehicle to drive by again. When it did, Williams fired at the vehicle.

Police do not know if he hit the vehicle, and they have not received any reports of injuries, Clemens said.

Williams told police that he’s had vandalism problems at his house prior to the incident.

Police are investigating the case.
