A couple of years ago, a resident in Pensacola (a nearby city) shot into the air to "scare" away an individual he thought was taking something from the yard. At 4 (or so) in the morning. Turned out that he threatened the paper carrier. He shot in the air because he was not sure of his target and wanted to "send a message".
