July 23rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

In a followup to our story last week about a shooting incident near Grant, authorities say a Cumberland man was cited for reckless use of a firearm, and public intoxication. According to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office, 31-year old Danny Shannon was cited for his role in the incident which took place during the late night hours of July 18th.

Several law enforcement agencies responded to the scene, after receiving reports of a man shooting a gun from a bridge and threatening to take his own life. Shannon was eventually apprehended at his residence near the bridge, and brought to the Cass County Memorial Hospital for evaluation. At the time, Sheriff Darby McLaren said no charges had been filed.
