AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - An Augusta man is facing charges after allegedly firing a gun during a fight, narrowly missing another man’s head, and striking an apartment building.

Patrick Lappin was held on $25,000 cash bail after making an initial appearance Monday in Kennebec County Superior Court on charges of criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon and reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon.

The Kennebec Journal (https://bit.ly/1DsyVHs ) reports that police responded to Glenridge Drive at around 3 a.m. Sunday for a report of a gunshot.

A witness said she saw two men tussling in a parking lot, heard a gunshot and saw a muzzle flash.

Lappin told police he confronted the other man because he was pushing a woman, and the gun discharge was accidental.

The bullet was found in a second-floor apartment bedroom.
