WOODBRIDGE, Va. (WDVM)– Prince William County Police have arrested a man for firing gun shots in his yard.

The suspect, 38-year-old Zeeshan Mughal, has been charged with child neglect, reckless handling of a firearm and discharge of firearms in public according to Prince William County police.
Jonathan Perok, First Sergeant for Prince William County Police said “No one was injured. We did find some shell cases in the lawn to support the fact that he did fire the weapon several times, but again, no property damage or entries.”
