State Patrol: shot was not specifically directed at anyone or anything

A 38-year-old man was arrested Saturday after allegedly firing a gun into the open waters of Puget Sound while aboard the a Washington State Ferry enroute from Bremerton to Seattle.

According to the Washington State Patrol, at approximately 9:30 p.m., WSP Vessel and Terminal Security Troopers responded to the MV Kaleetan upon its arrival at Colman Dock. By that time, WSF crews had already secured the suspect, who had boarded the vessel by vehicle.

At some point during the sailing, the man walked to the rear edge of the car deck and discharged a revolver into the water, a release from WSP states. The shot was not specifically directed at anyone or anything.

The King County resident was booked into the King County Jail for unlawfully aiming or discharging a firearm.
