Shots were fired at a rural Anamoose farmstead on Sunday, and an Anamoose man is facing charges in the incident.

The Sheridan County Sheriff was notified of someone firing a gun outside, and possible inside a rural home.
The sheriff reports 43-year-old Darren Geigle was arrested after a brief standoff when Geigle was in an out-building, and two children and a woman were inside the nearby house.

The sheriff says as officers were driving to the house to move the woman and children to safety, Geigle fired his rifle, setting off a small explosion that was apparently a substance called Tannerite, which is described as explosive targets used for firearms practice. 

Minot’s SWAT team responded to the scene and arrested Geigle without incident.
He is charged with two counts of terrorizing, a Class-C Felony carrying a maximum sentence of five years in prison.

Geigle was released from custody after posting $1,000 bond – he is due back in court October Third.
