They stated he shot three shots over the pasture where they keep their livestock. They stated the neighbor yelled “coyotes” then went back inside. The deputy asked if their livestock was in the pasture when he shot across it. They advised no because they were in the barn for morning feeding. The deputy advised them that their neighbor had not violated any laws by shooting on his own property in a direction where there were no people or livestock. They requested the deputy give the neighbor their number and asked that he call them before shooting. The deputy stated they could relay the message but their neighbor did not have to notify them before shooting. The deputy was not able to make contact with the neighbor at his residence.

HARASSMENT: A Newberry Twp. resident reported he received several unwanted text pictures from (redacted phone number). The pictures were of a male subject standing next to an apparently deceased male in a hospital-like/funeral home setting. The reporting party said that he did not know who this number belonged to and did not know the two males in the picture. The reporting party said he did call the number and a male told him that he sent the texts to his phone number in error. The reporting party said he then deleted the pictures from his phone and a short while later another picture came to his phone from the same number that was like the others. This picture was emailed to the deputy by the reporting party. The deputy then called the number, identified himself as a deputy and talked to a male that was uncooperative and hung up the phone. After reconnecting with him, he was warned against any more contact with the reporting party and was advised he will be charge accordingly if his actions continue. The male did advised the deputy in the short conversation the picture was of him and his recently deceased son. Soon after this the male hung up the phone again. The reporting party was advised of this information by the deputy and instructed to block the number and to call 911 if there is any further interaction with the individual.
