An AR-15, a local campground and an arrest. Here’s how police say they’re related

A 21-year-old man fired three shots from an AR-15 into a field on Pine Creek Road after two Woodward Camp employees asked him to leave, according to state police at Rockview.

Justin Bradley confronted the two employees at 105 Mountain Road on Saturday; the employees asked him to leave because of past issues. Bradley became upset and left in his black 2018 Ford Focus, but not before firing three shots into a tree line, according to police.

Two troopers found Bradley in a tent alongside an AR-15, which had a magazine with multiple XM855 rounds, according to police. He allegedly had glassy eyes, a strong odor of alcohol on his breath and appeared highly intoxicated.

Police said Bradley admitted to firing three shots from the AR-15, but claimed it was into a tree line and was target practice.

Bradley is charged with one misdemeanor count of recklessly endangering another person and one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct.

He was arraigned before District Judge Steven Lachman, who denied him bail because he attempted to kill himself.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
