ST. JOSEPH COUNTY — The Fourth of July is meant to be a day to celebrate the freedoms we have in our country. But a man was sent to jail, accused of abusing his Second Amendment rights and endangering a family trying to enjoy the holiday.
"In his yard if you go look you can see the bullet holes where he shot at myself and my son-in-law," said Cassondra Lowery from her yard on Ethel Avenue.
Lowery and about 30 of her friends and family were celebrating the holiday with fireworks. But the display wasn't entertaining everyone. Lowery says, her neighbor, Terry Tetzlaff came out of his home spraying a fire extinguisher at her and then went for the firework.
"At that point he then picked [the firework] up and threw it into the crowd of children," said Lowery.
Because it was still lit, the crowd scattered. She says Tetzlaff went back to his home, but immediately returned, armed with an assault rifle.
