VISTA (CNS) - A man suspected of shooting up his apartment in Vista, prompting a standoff with sheriff's deputies, is expected to be arraigned Thursday, a spokeswoman for the District Attorney's Office said Monday.
Christopher Michael Johnson, 26, was booked on suspicion of several counts of willful discharge of a firearm, posted bail and was set to be arraigned Thursday.
According to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department, Johnson fired his .44-caliber Magnum pistol in his apartment in the 900 block of Taylor Street in Vista about 11:50 p.m. Wednesday.
"Rounds went through a flat-screen TV in the living room," sheriff's Sgt. Tom Ness said. "Another round, possibly fired through a bedroom patio screen door, traveled through a closed window of a nearby apartment. The window shattered and some of the vertical window blinds broke. Fragments of the bullet were located on a small kitchen table."
Sheriff's deputies used a public address system to try to persuade Johnson to surrender, Ness said.
The Sheriff's Special Enforcement Detail was called to the scene after Johnson failed to respond.
"Once Johnson complied with commands and exited his apartment, deputies took him into custody without incident," Ness said. "A number of handguns and rifles were seized from the apartment as evidence."
Johnson was arrested about 4:45 a.m. on Dec. 26. No one was injured in the incident, Ness said.
