MARYSVILLE — A 72-year-old Marysville man was arrested without incident Friday evening after firing a gun while naked in the front yard outside his home, according to police.

Police were called to the man’s house in the 16600 block of 25th Avenue NE shortly after 6:30 p.m., Marysville police Lt. Jeff Goldman said.

When police arrived, the man was holding a .32 caliber pistol, Goldman said. When officers ordered him to drop the gun, he complied.

Neighbors said they heard the man fire two shots. He said he fired three shots, including one into the deck attached to his house. Police found a bullet there, Goldman said.

Witnesses told police the man pointed the revolver at a neighbor and threatened to kill him, according to Goldman.

The man was arrested for investigation of first-degree assault, unlawful discharge of a firearm and indecent exposure.
