An Antioch man turned himself in on Friday on a warrant for allegedly shooting his gun into the air during a ‘heated argument’ with his neighbors on July 4, police said.
An arrest warrant was issued for Bradley E. Gundlach, 24, of the 100 block of Depot Street in Antioch, on charges of recklessly discharging a firearm on July 4.
Antioch Police were called at 10:30 p.m. on July 4 to a residence in the 800 block of Anita Avenue for the report of several shots fired.
“It was reported to officers that the caller and a friend confronted his neighbors about carelessly setting off fireworks in the area,” Antioch Deputy Chief of Police Geoff Guttschow said.
“This interaction led to a heated argument, where it is alleged Gundlach retrieved a firearm from the residence and discharged it into the air several times in an attempt to intimidate the caller and his friend,” Guttschow added.
An arrest warrant was issued on August 6 and Gundlach turned himself in to the Lake County Jail four days later. He has since posted bail and been released.
Gundlach is scheduled to appear in court again on August 30.
“It was because of the hard work, dedication and attention to details by the responding Officers the night of the incident, that detectives were able to bring this case to the successful resolution of an arrest,” Guttschow said.
