Amarillo man faces aggravated assault charges

Amarillo, TX - One man was taken to jail after police say he was threatening his neighbors with multiple weapons.

25 year-old Carl Hiro Vanedloo is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

At around 8:00 p.m. Tuesday in the 1400 block of NW 12th Avenue, officers say Vanedloo fired a shotgun at the pavement, causing pellets to ricochet and hit two people, then threatened others with a machete.

Officers say Vanedloo was still holding a machete when they arrived, but that he complied while being taken into custody.

Both weapons were collected as evidence, and no major injuries were reported.
