Burien Man Charged With 1st-Degree Assault For Firing Shotgun At Cars
Our news partners at The Seattle Times are reporting that Jeffrey Fay, 54, the Burien man who tried to fire a shotgun into passing traffic last Tuesday morning (March 23), has been charged with first-degree assault.
According to The Times, Fay is using “sleepwalking” as his defense:
Fay told deputies that he had awakened that morning to find that his children were missing, his house had been ransacked and “the next thing he knew he was walking down the street with a shotgun,” charging papers said.
Fay’s brother told authorities that the man had a history of sleepwalking, court papers said.
