Police have arrested a man accused of causing panic in his Masury neighborhood by firing more than 30 gunshots, drawing a response from six law enforcement agencies.

After dispatchers received calls from several people reporting shots being fired at around 9 p.m. Tuesday, officers went to Lorain Street where neighbors told them they saw a flash of light from the back of a house on the 8100 block of the street.

Seeing numerous shell casings behind the home, officers blocked off the street and called for backup from other police departments.

Using a PA system, officers ordered anyone in the house to come outside.

As 44-year-old Lance Schell Jr. exited the home, officers trained their rifles on him, ordering him to lift his shirt so they could make sure he wasn’t armed.

As he was being handcuffed, Schell told police that he had been target shooting. Police say he allowed officers to search his home.

In addition to two air pistols found on a coffee table, officers say there was a .40 caliber handgun and 9 mm pistol on an end table.   A .22 caliber long rifle was on the back seat of an SUV in the driveway.

Police say Schell admitted that he had been listening to a police scanner in his home and know that officers were on their way.

In addition to Brookfield Police, officers from Sharon, Hubbard, Vienna, Liberty and the Sheriff’s Department were involved.

In all, police counted 33 spent shell casings behind the home and a live cartridge on the back porch.

According to the police report, since there was no safe place to fire that many rounds in the neighborhood and because of the large police response, Schell was being charged with inducing panic and disorderly conduct.

Schell was booked into the county jail awaiting a video arraignment in Eastern District Court on Friday.
