CHICO — A canine was shot and killed Sunday earlier than a person allegedly fired a number of gunshots right into a neighboring house.
Michael Douglas Marzolf, 52, of Chico was arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty, taking pictures into an inhabited dwelling and willful discharge of a firearm in a grossly negligent method.
A caller stated they heard a number of gunshots close to the 1600 block of Filbert Avenue. Police arrived on the deal with and checked on two completely different properties, a press launch issued by the Chico Police Division stated.
In keeping with the discharge, officers imagine that Marzolf shot and killed his canine earlier than firing a number of bullets into a close-by house. No individuals had been injured by the gunfire.
“He was found to be in a delusional state and was unable to supply a press release to elucidate the explanation for his actions,” the discharge stated.
Marzolf was booked into the Butte County Jail with bail set at $600,000.
