A 30-year-old Fairfield Bay man has been charged with aggravated assault after allegedly firing a gun.

About 2:30 p.m. Nov. 5, Van Buren County sheriff’s Deputy David Merriott responded to a call about shots fired at a residence at 130 Hemphill Road.

Merriott said in a report that he spoke with Twana Goodwin who said she had asked Aaron Huisman to retrieve his furniture from her home. She said she and a friend entered the residence to get the last of Huisman’s furniture and he “took issue” with this, coming into the residence and threatening them, according to court documents.

Goodwin said Huisman then brandished a firearm in the direction of Goodwin’s friend, Michael Jane Roberts, who fled the house in search of help, the document said.

Goodwin said she then went back into the residence to finish getting the furniture and heard two shots fired, then saw Huisman flee the residence, the document states. Roberts confirmed Goodwin’s story, Merriott said.

Merriott found two spent .45 caliber casings and later a pistol was found hidden in the woods, the document states.

Huisman was charged with aggravated assault, a Class D felony.
