Two “highly intoxicated men” were questioned by sheriff’s deputies after one of them, a 37 year-old Bremerton man, started firing a handgun, randomly it seemed, in the parking lot of a Silverdale bowling alley, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.
Nobody was injured.
The man with the gun was taken into custody and booked into Kitsap County Jail on investigation of reckless endangerment and malicious mischief, while his 34-year-old friend, also from Bremerton, was released, according to the sheriff’s office.
The Sheriff’s Office responded to the 2700 block of Northwest Myhre Road, the All Star Lanes bowling center, about 5:30 p.m. Thursday, established a perimeter around the shooter and began locking down the business, according to sheriff spokesman Scott Wilson. Once deputies began talking with the gunman, he did what he was told and was taken into custody without incident, Wilson said.
