(KAIR)--A report of a man firing a gun towards a house and vehicle, in Lancaster Sunday night, while threatening to shoot any responding law enforcement, led to a brief struggle, and ultimately, to his arrest.

According to a release from Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie, deputies, shortly before 11:30 that night, were dispatched to a Lancaster residence after the crimes were reported.

When they arrived, deputies made contact with the suspect, now identified as 36-year-old Christopher Trapp, of Lancaster, leading to the brief struggle, and to his arrest.

Laurie, in the release, says "multiple bullet holes were discovered in a vehicle parked on the property," and "three firearms were seized from the residence, including one that had been reported stolen in Buchanan County, Missouri."

Trapp was taken into custody on charges for aggravated assault, criminal damage to property, aggravated endangering a child, battery on a law enforcement officer, interference with law enforcement, and unlawful discharge of a firearm.

Following his arrest, Trapp was booked into the Atchison County Jail.
