A 67-year-old Elton man is facing charges after firing his weapon at a vehicle during an altercation, authorities said.

Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff Office spokesman Chris Ivey said John Henry Sandlin was arrested Thursday morning on four counts of aggravated assault of a firearm, one count of simple battery and one count of illegal use of a weapon.

"Deputies received a complaint that a man had shot at occupants in a vehicle," Ivey said in a news release. "One (witness) stated Sandlin struck one of the victims before going inside his residence and returning with a firearm."

Ivey said Sandlin then fired the weapon into the air and then pointed it at the occupants of the vehicle and fired the weapon again.

"Sandlin was questioned and admitted to firing the weapon," Ivey said.
