Milton man gets charged for shooting into a home
A Milton man is facing charges for firing a gun into a home while people were inside.
It happened around ten o'clock Sunday night on Santa Gertrudas Drive.
The suspected shooter was later picked up by Santa Rosa County Deputies and is now in jail facing charges.
Late Sunday night Santa Rosa County Deputies say a caller told them a gun had been fired at their home while they were inside.
Deputies say Terry Collie sat inside his white Chevy pickup and fired his shotgun twice at a mobile home.
They say, before the shooting, Collie had called the person who lives inside the home several times and that person asked Collie to stop.
He then knocked on the door and was told the person was in the shower and couldn't speak with him.
So he got back inside his truck and started shooting at the home.
The person inside quickly called 9-11.
Brittany Granger said, "This is something different for this neighborhood... Somebody shooting somebody's house up stuff like this..this is very shocking and scary."
While on the way to the scene a Deputy spotted Collie heading towards highway 90.
He was stopped and Deputies say he had a rifle held against his shoulder and a shotgun in the passengers seat.
During a search prescription pills were found and Deputies said they could smell alcohol on his breath.
Brittany Granger has lived in the area for two years and has two small children.
She says the shooting makes her feel uneasy about the neighborhood.
"That terrifies me because it could've been one of my kids that got hurt."
Collie faces a list of charges including; aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, discharging a firearm from a vehicle. using a firearm under the influence, and drug possession.
Collie is being held in the Santa Rosa County jail on a $36,500 bond.
