(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte man is accused of hitting a moving vehicle with a shotgun.  34-year old Lamar Wilson made his appearance on the charges Friday at La Porte Circuit Court.


In June, police said a man and woman were arguing at 505 Maple Avenue in La Porte.  Police said Wilson told the man to leave and fired a gunshot in the air.  According to police, the man was in his truck leaving when Wilson struck the vehicle with another shotgun blast.


Police said it was against the law for Wilson to have a firearm because of prior convictions.  His criminal record includes a manslaughter conviction in the state of Michigan.
