MIDLAND – One man has been arrested following an incident that happened in Midland on Tuesday morning.

Midland Police were called out to the 2900 block of North "I" Street, just after 10 a.m. where they found 43-year-old Buddy Myers barricaded himself inside a home.

About an hour later, Myers and an elderly female, who were in the house, exited the house without incident.

An investigation later revealed that a 19-year-old playing disc golf inadvertently threw a disc into Myers' backyard while playing at Windlands Park.

We're told the man attempted to contact Myers at his front door but no one answered. However, when the man looked over Myers' back fence, Myers exited his home and fired a shot in the direction of the man.

Myers is behind bars on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

No injuries were reported in connection with the shooting.
