A 41-year-old Clarkston man was arrested Tuesday afternoon after allegedly discharging a firearm inside an apartment.

According to police, a bullet was reportedly fired from Jeremy A. Shulke’s residence on the 600 block of 10th Street shortly after 4 p.m.

Clarkston Police Chief Joel Hastings said a woman in an adjoining unit called police when she heard a loud bang and felt the air move in the kitchen she was standing in. A hole was reportedly visible in a wall, along with an exit hole, but no one was injured.

According to police, officers contacted Shulke, who appeared to be impaired, and he initially denied knowing what happened, saying a car possibly backfired. Officers spotted a hole in the wall of his residence, and Shulke reportedly admitted he accidentally discharged a firearm.

The gun was seized by law enforcement.

Shulke was released from the Asotin County Jail on Wednesday on a $1,000 bond and is facing a gross misdemeanor reckless endangerment charge in District Court.

He will be arraigned at 10 a.m. June 25 before Judge Tina Kernan.
