A man, who has previous conviction for terrorizing, has been arrested again after being caught on surveillance camera firing a gun into the air in a fit of rage.

A video footage shows Gerard Shimizu pulling up in front of a home in Mongmong, getting out of his vehicle and, with gun in hand, fired first into the car and again into the air.

Court documents state that Shimizu switched the gun from one hand to another while firing the gun in the air.

While a motive was not disclosed, court documents noted that Shimizu’s attention was focused on the home as he was firing the gun.

Police said they found three discarded shell casings at the scene and that a witness corroborated the details of the incident.

According to court records, Shimizu has previous conviction for terrorizing, which prohibits him from possessing a firearm.

In the recent case, he has been charged with possession of a firearm without a firearms identification card, reckless conduct and unlawful discharge of a firearm. He was booked and confined.
