Coulee City man arrested after shot fired

A 29-year-old Coulee City man was in the Grant County Jail after allegedly firing a rifle, causing Coulee City schools to lock down temporarily Friday morning, the county sheriff’s office reported.

David E. Chapman was arrested without incident Friday morning at his home in a trailer park in the 36800 block of Road I.8 Northeast in Coulee City.

Chapman is alleged to have pointed a rifle at his brother during an argument at the home Thursday night. That incident was not reported until Friday morning, when a witness told deputies Chapman stepped out of his RV around 7:30 a.m. with a rifle and fired one shot. The witness wasn’t certain where Chapman was aiming.

A spent shell casing and a rifle were found inside Chapman’s RV.

Chapman was jailed on suspicion of “one count of second-degree assault-domestic violence” and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, the sheriff’s office said.

Nobody was injured.
