An Alabama resident is accused of driving drunk and randomly firing a rifle at homes and cars on the Tonawanda Indian Reservation on Tuesday night.
Eric A. Easton, 28, of Ham Road, Alabama, is charged with two counts of reckless endangerment, 1st, a Class D felony.
He was jailed on $100,000 bail.
On Tuesday in the late evening, deputies responded to Basom for reports of shots being fired at homes and cars.
The alleged victims appeared to be randomly selected and no injuries were reported, though property was damaged.
Easton was taken into custody late Tuesday night by Erie County deputies and was arraigned in the Town of Newstead on Thursday. Following his arraignment, he was released from Erie County custody and immediately arrested by a Genesee County deputy.
The investigation is continuing in Erie, Niagara and Genesee counties and additional charged are likely, according to the Sheriff's Office.
