BLUE RIDGE, Ariz. -- Officers in Blue Ridge, Arizona, arrested a man after he shot up an unoccupied home. Blue Ridge is a small town 30 miles north of Payson.

Authorities say the Coconino County Sheriff's Office received six 911 calls from neighbors who heard continuous gunshots close to their homes.

The suspect, Justin Kincaid, 31, was inside the house playing loud music and pacing back and forth when deputies arrived.

A SWAT team was called in for assistance. Officers used a speaker system to convince Kincaid to come out unarmed. He obliged without further incident.

Upon inspecting the home, it appeared to deputies that Kincaid had shot at everything breakable in the house, including all 35 windows, all the mirrors, multiple kitchen appliances, and a large crystal and china collection. They also found 54 used shotgun shells.

According to police, Kincaid told detectives he left a relative's residence last Sunday and drove to the housing community with intentions of camping in the forest. While looking around, he says he found the house with its garage door open.

Kincaid said he lived in the garage until it was obvious that no one else would be returning. He also said at some point, he became frustrated with his circumstances, which caused him to shoot randomly within the house.

Kincaid is being held on charges of second degree burglary, felony criminal damage and possession of a firearm while committing a felony.
