48-year-old Spannish Taylor was charged with shooting his weapon into the ground twice in response to his neighbor’s dog that showed no aggression, all seen with security camera footage.
On May 30th, at 6:35 Deputies Harris and Craighead were dispatched in response to an aggravated assault at 6503 Copper Leaf Cove East where they spoke to the victim, Fabiola Flores. She stated that her neighbor, the defendant, Spannish Taylor, brandished with a gun fired at her house around 6:25 that night. Camera footage showed Taylor parking his motorcycle at the house, yelling at the dog, and firing approximately two rounds into the ground with corresponding casings and bullet holes later found in the investigation.
Neither the victim nor the dog were injured during the incident. Police described the demeanor for the dog via the camera footage to be without signs of aggression towards Taylor. Later they found Taylor at his residence located at 6476 Amberwood Drive where he told police after being questioned that he shot out of fear for his life. He exclaimed that the dog was trying to attack him.
Spannish Taylor was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon. He was later released on his own recognizance.
