John Edwin Terry, 63 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said he repeatedly fired a gun and placed others in fear of their safety without provocation at his home on Crescent Avenue.

Reports stated that Terry fired a round into the air without any legal justification.  Reports added that his son then proceeded to walk downstairs to see what was going on when Terry fired a second round into the wall.

Terry is charged with simple assault and reckless conduct.
