AUSTIN, Minn. (FOX 47) – Darnell Jones, 29, faces a charge of violent felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.
Police say he has prior convictions related to drug possession and reckless discharge of a firearm.
This stems from Saturday night when reports of shots fired in the 300 block of 11th Street Northwest led police to Jones who they noticed had a firearm sticking out of his pocket.
He did not obey police commands and officers used a taser on him.
Police say the gun was later found in a flowerpot and bullet holes were discovered in a nearby vehicle.
His initial appearance in court will be September 19th.
