Man charged after shots fired in West Duluth

DULUTH — A 22-year-old man faces two weapons charges after allegedly firing a shotgun outside a home Thursday.
At 7:54 p.m. Duluth police officers were dispatched to 5809 Cody St. after multiple 911 callers reported a man firing a shotgun and fleeing into that home, according to a criminal complaint. A video given to police shows a man "holding a long gun, pointing it to the sky, and a resulting muzzle flash," the complaint said.
Several people reported witnessing the incident, including a man working in his shop who was approached by a group of teens looking for help inflating a basketball, the complaint said. While he was inflating the ball, he heard a shot. The teens ran inside and told him a man across the street had shot at them with a shotgun.
Police arrested Terrell Richard Edwards, who later allegedly told an officer he fired the gun because he had a "gut feeling" there was about to be a robbery at a nearby business after seeing "a group of males" nearby, the complaint said. A search warrant executed at the Cody Street residence turned up a shotgun.
Edwards faces charges for intentional discharge of a firearm that endangers public safety, and reckless discharge of a firearm within a municipality. Both crimes are felonies.
