WALTON COUNTY, Fla. — A DeFuniak Springs man is facing multiple felony charges after allegedly shooting into a neighbor’s home and threatening other neighbors.
Randall Holley, 26, is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, shooting a missile into an occupied dwelling, using a firearm under the influence of alcohol, and discharging a firearm in public, said the Walton County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO).
According to the WCSO, it happened this way: On August 25, WCSO deputies responded to 38 Willie B. Parker Road after a call about an argument and the sound of gunfire.
When deputies arrived, they said they saw a white male, later identified as Holley, with no shirt on the porch and his right arm stretched out, holding a firearm. At that moment, the man is alleged to have fired two shots.
Deputies got into a tactical position, and the individual entered the residence. The WCSO said Holley came out of the home after a short time and was detained.
An investigation reportedly found that Holley fired multiple rounds towards a tree in the front yard. One of the rounds missed the tree and struck a home across the street, said the WCSO. According to the WCSO, a bullet was found lodged in an interior door feet away from where a woman was sleeping.
The investigation also allegedly revealed that when neighbors attempted to intervene during an apparent argument with his wife, Holley pointed the gun at them, threatening to kill them.
Holley was transported and booked into the Walton County Jail. He was given a $5,000 bond and released, said the WCSO.
