An Oregon man has been arrested after he allegedly opened fire on an apartment complex, injuring two, after he became angry about loud children, reports Portland’s KPTV.
The alleged shooter Franklin L. Tomes, became angry about the noise at a children’s birthday party—so he opened fire with an AK-47, unloading 12 rounds and hitting two men.
Both men are expected to survive, but one may lose his foot.
The shooting happened in Newport, a hardscrabble fishing town that is notably obsessed with guns.
After shooting the men, Tomes retreated to his apartment where he sat holed up from the police for five hours. Police eventually talked him out peacefully.
Tomes is in jail on charges of attempted murder, first-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon and reckless endangering.
