The Newark Police Department dispatched officers to the area after receiving a report of gunshots fired. When cops got to the scene, there were no victims.

When cops arrived at the home, they spoke to the victim, a 35-year-old man, and learned that the suspect allegedly committed an assault and damaged a motor vehicle.

Police officers got permission to search the house and reportedly discovered a loaded rifle and 121 rounds of ammunition.

The suspect was subsequently placed under arrest and charged with numerous crimes, including simple assault, terroristic threats, and criminal mischief. Moreover, the suspect was reportedly charged with a certain persons offense for possessing a weapon while prohibited.
