Suspect arrested in Spanish Springs shooting
SPARKS, Nev. (KOLO) - A suspect is in custody accused of firing shots at a home in Spanish Springs early Tuesday morning.
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office says Kyle Acker, 23, fired shots that hit a house on Martell Place around 1 a.m. on March 16, 2021. Deputies found multiple bullet strikes on the property as well as on vehicles parked outside the home, and they recovered bullets at the scene. No people were hit.
Deputies found Acker inside a vehicle near his home with spent shell casings seen inside the vehicle. Acker agreed to let deputies search his vehicle in which they found two loaded magazines. Deputies tied the bullets inside one of the magazines to those found at the Martell Place scene.
The incident is not believed to be gang-related. Acker and the person he was shooting at knew each other, authorities said.
Acker faces multiple charges including discharging a gun at an occupied structure, discharging a gun where people may be endangered, destruction of property, and child abuse/neglect with use of a deadly weapon.
Investigators say they have found everyone involved in the incident and there is no threat to the public.
