When the teen peered over a fence, Myers exited his house and shot a pistol in the direction of the teen, who was in his back alley, Midland Police spokesman Sara Higgins Higgins told the Reporter-Telegram.

KWES-TV reports that Myers then barricaded himself in his house when police arrived. About an hour later, Myers and an elderly woman, exited the house without incident.

Myers was booked into jail by the Midland County Sheriff’s Office. No injuries were reported in connection with the shooting.
