NORTH LIBERTY, Ind. -- Two men out mushroom hunting off South State Street in North Liberty had a disagreement that led to shots fired.
Officers were called at approximately 9:31 a.m. for 15 to 20 shots fired.
Police say Tyler Rininger fired shots to intimidate the other man following an argument.
While officers searched for the man, they heard additional shots ring out from the woods.
Officers called for Rininger from the PA on the police vehicle after which he surrendered himself to NLPD at approximately 10.a.m.
Police say Rininger was armed with an AR-15 rifle and a pistol where he allegedly fired shots from both guns.
Rininger is currently being held at the St. Joseph County Jail, no bond, on the preliminary charges of intimidation, possession of a handgun without license and criminal recklessness while armed with a deadly weapon.
Police say Rininger was in the vicinity of residences.
Officials have not determined the direction of shots fired from Rininger.
Rininger has reportedly been charged with carrying an unregistered firearm.
