PORT MOUTON, N.S. —

The RCMP say several charges have been laid following a dispute that resulted in broken windows in a Southwest Port Mouton, Queens County, home and a vehicle was disabled after one man allegedly shot at it.

The RCMP say a call was placed at 3:32 a.m. on Nov. 10. In a media release the RCMP say two men had been having a conversation via social media when one told the other to come to his place.

“The complainant said he and three other men went to the suspect's home, who got out of the vehicle and started breaking windows in the suspect's home. The suspect responded by shooting at the grille of the victim's vehicle with a shotgun,” the media release states. “Three shots were fired, and when the victim tried to leave the area, the car broke down.”

The RCMP say no one was hurt in the alleged incident.

Michael Gerald Douglas Wentzell, 27, of Southwest Port Mouton, was arrested by police, without incident a short time later. He was held in custody and has been charged with:

• Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm

• Careless Use of a Firearm

• Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose

• Mischief Under $5,000 - Damage to Property

Wentzell appeared in Bridgewater Provincial Court on Nov. 12 and was released on conditions. Police said in the Nov. 13 media release they expect to lay further charges against other individuals who were involved.

The investigation is ongoing.
