Storm Lake authorities report the arrest of a man who fired shots in the parking lot of an apartment complex then fled the scene on Sunday evening. The report of the disturbance and the gunshots came in at approximately 11:52 p.m. Upon arrival at the location officers interviewed several people who had been attending a party in one of the apartments along with several other witnesses. They learned that a verbal dispute between two men had occurred and it was taken outside to the front of the building. One of the men, 31-year-old William Ford of Storm Lake, allegedly displayed a handgun and sometime after the second man fled, Ford fired the weapon. He then also fled the scene before the arrival of police. No one was struck by gunfire and one .40 caliber cartridge was recovered. Just a short time later, police located the vehicle Ford had fled in at a local residence and at around 4:25 a.m. the Storm Lake Police Department Tactical Entry Team executed search and arrest warrants at the residence. Ford was located and taken into custody. Seized during the search were a .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun, a Tec 9 9mm weapon, ammunition and various ammunition magazines. Two vehicles have been impounded as well. Ford was booked into the Buena Vista County jail on a $27,600 bond and charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, going armed with intent and assault while participating in a felony, all class D felonies, intimidation with a dangerous weapon, a class C felony, carrying weapons, an aggravated misdemeanor, and reckless use of a firearm and disorderly conduct, simple misdemeanors. An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
