RENO, Nev. (AP) - A Reno man is behind bars after officers with the Nevada Division of Parole and Probation reported seeing him firing a gun from a car on the I-580 freeway.

The incident began around 8 p.m. Wednesday when the officers witnessed four gunshots fired from the driver’s side of a four-door sedan.

They notified Department of Safety dispatchers, who contacted the Nevada Highway Patrol.

Parole and probation officers followed the vehicle to a convenience store at Kietzke Lane and Prosperity Street, where they were joined by NHP troopers and Reno police.

Authorities say the driver, Winston Nathaniel Sam, called 911 and told dispatchers he was armed. He was taken into custody without incident a few minutes later.

Sam was booked on a felony charge of discharging a weapon from a vehicle.
