A 37-year-old Boise man was arrested by Boise police Sunday afternoon on suspicion of threatening two people and firing a shotgun into the ground.

Boise police responded to a report of shots fired at a home in the 2300 block of South Pheasant Lane on Sunday afternoon. The caller reported that two people were attempting to meet with someone in the neighborhood when their vehicle became stuck in mud.

The victims told officers they were trying to get their vehicle out of the mud when a man approached and threatened them. The man returned a short time later with a shotgun and fired it twice into the ground. Both victims say they feared they were in danger.

Responding officers contacted suspect Steven L. Danielson, who was cooperative, police said. He was booked into the Ada County Jail on a felony charge of aggravated battery and a charge of discharging a firearm inside the city limits. He remained in jail Monday evening.
