WHITE DEER TOWNSHIP — A 27-year-old New Columbia man is locked up in Union County on various felony assault and threats charges stemming from allegations he fired a shotgun toward another New Columbia man.

Zakary Walls was arraigned early Sunday morning before District Judge Jeffrey Rowe, Lewisburg. He has been charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, felony terroristic threats, misdemeanor counts of simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, criminal mischief, loitering and prowling at nighttime, disorderly conduct and harassment and a summary count of criminal trespass

The alleged incident occurred around 12:20 a.m. July 18 in the 1,200 block of Bostion Road, White Deer Township, Union County.
