A Johnson City convicted felon is behind bars after police say he fired at least 13 shots inside a house and several more outside.
According to authorities, 37-year-old Kenneth Miller was arrested Sunday and charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
The arrest came after neighbors called about several shots being fired at a house on Pardee Street at around 4 a.m. Patrol unites found Miller outside the house. His girlfriend was found crying inside a closet.
Investigators said they found a .22 caliber rifle, a pistol holster, and a bag containing ammunition inside the house. They added that Miller fired shots from a 9mm handgun.
The woman said she was awakened by Miller pulling her hair and an argument ensued.
Miller is being held in the Washington County Detention Center on a $70,000 bond.
