Roseville Police Looking for Man Who Allegedly Fired Gun in Yard
Authorities are looking for a Roseville man who allegedly fired a gun in his backyard Friday morning, then left the property.
Officers were called to the 300 block of Capitol View around 8:15 a.m. on a report of a man firing a long gun in his backyard. A woman told the dispatcher she recognized the man, later identified as 66-year-old Donald Ischer, as her neighbor.
Authorities established a perimeter around Ischer's home and contacted him by phone.
According to police, Ischer said he had just left a business in Oakdale and was on his way home. When questioned about the shooting of the firearm, Ischer became defensive and hung up on the dispatcher, police say.
Officers searched the neighborhood and were unable to locate Ischer. Investigators believe he may be driving his 1993 Lincoln Mark 8, with Minnesota registration TYC403. He may be in the east metro or traveling to a second home on Green Lake near Chisago.
Anyone with information on Ischer's whereabouts is asked to contact local law enforcement or call 911. Police are advising the public not to approach Ischer, but to immediately contact authorities.
Conviction of reckless discharge of a firearm carries a maximum penalty of up to five years in prison, a fine of up to $10,000 or both.
