SKOWHEGAN — A local man remained behind bars Saturday on two felony counts of reckless conduct with a firearm.

Shayne Oliver, 22, of Skowhegan was arrested Monday after police say he fired a single shot from an SKS assault rifle at a 2002 Chevrolet Malibu on Main Street. The shot missed its mark, but police said the incident was a potentially dangerous situation.

“When police recovered the SKS, it was still loaded with additional rounds in the magazine,” Deputy Police Chief Dale Lancaster said. “Though the round missed the vehicle, which was fortunate, the trajectory of the bullet still had the potential to do serious harm.”

The car is owned by a Shannon Young, of Madison. The car’s driver was Nathaniel Udoroh, also of Madison.

Lancaster said Oliver and Udoroh have been arguing for the past couple of weeks. Oiliver surrendered without incident.

Oliver remains at the Somerset County Jail in East Madison, unable to post the $2,500 cash bond, according to a jail intake worker. He made his initial court appearance Wednesday.
