LOUISVILLE, Ky -- A Louisville man is facing charges after police said he shot a crossbow at two neighbors, nearly hitting them.

According to police, Norman Holton was arrested Monday afternoon in the 400 block of 38th Street after two victims told police he fired a crossbow at them.

Holton, who lived next door to the victims, fired the crossbow which missed two neighbors, but went through the porch and became lodged in a column two houses away, causing a hole six inches deep.

Holton told police he felt threatened by his neighbors, went inside to grab his crossbow and fired it in their direction.

No one was injured.

Holton is charged with wanton endangerment and criminal mischief.
