Police charge man after gun discharges in apartment

BRISTOL — A bullet traveled through several walls of an apartment complex on Volunteer Parkway without injuring anyone early Saturday morning.
Jarred B. Horton, 25, 1270 Volunteer Parkway, was loading his Springfield XD .45-caliber handgun while intoxicated when it accidentally discharged at about 4 a.m., according to Bristol police.
Police were dispatched to the scene on reports of shots fired and found Horton knocking on a neighbor’s door when they arrived.
“Officers discovered that a bullet had traveled through several walls into an adjoining apartment,” according to the incident report.
Horton was charged with reckless endangerment because he was inebriated, his wife was also in the apartment and residents were in the apartment the bullet traveled through, police said.
