A man is facing several charges after police say he fired several shots within his home.

Police were called to a home in the 2300 block of Garden Dr. in Janesville early Monday morning for a call of shots fired, and reported hearing several gunshots being fired inside a home.

At about the same time, a woman inside that home called 911 saying a man was firing shots, although apparently not at anyone.

Officers were eventually able to make contact with 59-year-old Michael Howard, who lives in the home at 2332 Garden Dr. where the shots were fired.  He is in jail on the following charges.

  • Endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon.

  • Disorderly conduct while armed.

  • Threats to law enforcement officer.

  • Resisting an officer.

No one was injured, and a booking photo of Howard was not immediately available.
