The man, later identified as Bryan Sturman, had reportedly been drinking in his home when he says he heard noises outside. For reasons unknown, he opened his door and opened fire on the construction crew working the road at about 8th Street and Bland Ave.

“[He was] having some mental issues, some alcohol was involved, from that he just opened the door, walked out and started shooting,” Mounds Police Chief Antonio Porter reportedly told newson6.com the evening of the incident.

Sturman shot several rounds into a nearby construction vehicle and shot two men in the arm. Their injuries are considered non-life-threatening. He was arrested shortly thereafter and transported to jail, facing three counts of shooting with intent to kill, 2 counts of aggravated assault and battery with a deadly weapon, and carrying a firearm while under the influence of alcohol.

A check of Sturman’s criminal history turned up no results aside from traffic violations.
