Gunfire rings out after a woman goes to ask about some items for sale in Muhlenberg County.

The woman told sheriff's deputies that she and her boyfriend went to a home at 230 Brick Street in Graham on July 4.

She says she knocked on the door, no one answered, so she began to return to her vehicle.

The woman told deputies that a man then came outside holding a shotgun and fired.

She also said she believed another man was in the house and that both of them were under the influence.

Following an investigation, sheriff's deputies say a search warrant was served and the suspect was located along with a 12-gauge shotgun.

35-year-old Eric Fuqua was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, wanton endangerment, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphenalia.
