GREENFIELD, Wis. (AP) - A Greenfield man is in trouble with the law after he allegedly fired a gun in the direction of a child during a dispute over fireworks.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/29gIT8e ) the child called police Saturday evening, telling them that a neighbor fired a gun toward him.

Police said in a news release that the 45-year-old man said the child had been shooting off fireworks. He first told officers he’d shot fireworks in the child’s direction, but later said the sound came from a gun. Police found a .40-caliber pistol and a magazine of ammunition in the man’s apartment.

He was arrested on suspicion of recklessly endangering safety. The case has been referred to prosecutors for possible charges.
