DAVENPORT – An Iowa man has been cited by police after firing his shotgun to scare of intruders attempting to kick in his door.

On Friday, March 31, 2017, at approximately 5:12 AM, Davenport, Iowa police responded to 2300 Gaines St. in reference to a shots fired call. The resident, 30-year-old Brandon Wagner, reported he was woken up to the sound of his back door being kicked in. Wagner armed himself with a shotgun and confronted several subjects on his porch.

When the subjects saw Wagner was armed they ran from the residence. Wagner said he shot a round off in the air as the subjects were running away. The subjects got into a vehicle and sped off in the alley at which time Wagner said he fired another round in the air.

As a result, Brandon Wagner was cited for Discharging a Firearm in the City Limits.

Detectives are conducting follow up on the attempted burglary to Wagner’s residence.

    If he had shot the intruders it would of been justified. It would of fallen under “fleeing felon” and protecting his property. He fired in the air so it’s a violation. Shoot an intruder, no charges. Fire a warning shot, and get a citation.
