Allegations of shooting a gun into a Claremore residence landed Bradley Jones in the Rogers County Jail.

Jones, a Claremore resident, is facing three possible weapons charges in Rogers County.

Court records filed in the case show that Claremore Police Department’s Officer Nate Reed was dispatched to Ninth Street in reference to a man knocking on the front door of a residence.

While Reed was en route dispatched told Reed the reporting party said they heard a gun shot.

According to the court records, the reporting party said they believed the man had a handgun.

“Upon arrival in the area I was looking for the address and located a male subject walking out from behind a tree,” Reed reported.

Reed noted a black handgun in Jones’s right hand and that Jones started walking east on Ninth Street.

“I exited my patrol car and noticed the male subject attempted to place the handgun behind his back,” Reed said. “I gave verbal commands for the man to get on the ground and I noticed the firearm fall to the ground.”

Reed said backup arrived and the man was placed in a patrol vehicle.

In the affidavit, Reed identifies the handgun as a Springfield Armory XD 9mm, with a round in the chamber and a loaded magazine.

Officers examined the residence on Ninth Street and located broken glass and a bullet hole in both the screen door and wooden door.

A bullet casing was located near a car parked in the front yard.

Inside the residence officers reportedly located the fired bullet inside a couch.

While someone did live at the residence, they were not home at the time, according to the affidavit.

Jones was booked into the Rogers County Jail and is facing possible felony charges of discharging a firearm into a dwelling, reckless conduct with a firearm and carrying a weapon unlawfully.
