A man upset because he couldn't locate a family member's grave fired a gun in a Spokane cemetery Sunday, leading to his arrest, police said today.
Jeffrey B. Holcomb, 32, was arrested after police respond to a report of shots fired at Fairmont Memorial Gardens, 5299 W. Wellesley Ave, about 1:10 p.m.
Witnesses said two men in a car pointed a handgun out a car window and fired at the cemetery. Police stopped the vehicle as it left the cemetery.
Offices say Holcomb, the driver, said he “fired the handgun out of frustration” at not being able to find a gravesite, according to a news release.
Holcomb was arrested for drunken driving, driving on a suspended license, reckless endangerment, unlawful discharge of a firearm and possession of marijuana.
Police found “a loaded and cocked handgun” on the seat of his car, according to Officer Tim Moses. No one was injured.
