Yonatan Zuniga-Sanchez was booked into the Washoe County Jail Tuesday on suspicion of assault and destruction of property.

Investigators say he was driving a gold Ford pickup Tuesday afternoon about a mile (1.6 kilometer) east of Montreux Golf & Country Club when he allegedly fired a handgun at another vehicle, shattering a window.

The patrol says they found a loaded, black BB gun in his truck that resembled a 9mm Beretta handgun and was missing the orange tip used to distinguish it from a firearm.

Zuniga-Sanchez was being held Wednesday without bail. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer or will be appointed one at a pending court appearance.
