TAOS, N.M. (AP) - A Taos man is accused of shooting at his neighbor’s vehicle while her family, including a child, was inside.

Taos County sheriff’s deputies say a woman reported shots being fired at her car Saturday afternoon.

According to the caller, she along with her husband and child were heading toward their home when neighbor Joseph Ferrara allegedly shot at them.

Deputies say Ferrara, who appeared unarmed, refused to leave his home.

He admitted to firing a weapon but denied shooting at anyone.

Deputies say he surrendered peacefully after an hour. Two handguns were recovered from his property.

He has been booked on one count each of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and negligent use of a weapon.

It wasn’t immediately clear Sunday if he had an attorney.
