    An Oregon man said he felt terrible about shooting up his neighbors’ homes for no particular reason.

    Steven Scholz was arrested after he intentionally fired his gun multiple times inside his own home Saturday morning, hitting neighboring houses and parked cars, reported KITV-TV.

    The 66-year-old Scholz said he didn’t have a particular reason for firing his weapons about 9 a.m. at his house on a cul-de-sac in Oregon City.

    “I figured I’d just shoot at random because I had all these guns,” Scholz said from jail.

    He said he would not have started shooting if he had realized his neighbors were home.

    “Hurting my neighbors is the last thing I want to do,” Scholz said.

    “I love them guys, I would lay down my life for them. They have families, I have nothing.”

    His next-door neighbor, Deanna Segura, said multiple bullets ripped through her home — and one barely missed her son.

    Another neighbor, Michelle Sandoval, said she heard at least nine gunshots over 20 minutes, and some of the bullets fired through her daughter’s room, a garage door and her husband’s pickup truck parked outside.

    “It was scary because you think you’re safe in your own home and then all of a sudden there’s a shooting, And we didn’t even know where it was coming from at first,” she said.

    Police said Scholz fired 20 to 30 rounds through the front and side of his home from the inside.

    No injuries were reported in the shooting.

    he was released.

    Scholz, who underwent a psychiatric evaluation and treatment for unrelated injuries, said he’s not comfortable returning to his home.“I know I wouldn’t feel warm in that neighborhood,” he said.

    He killed because he is a sick person. Give him another weapon like a knife, or even a vehicle to mow people down and he could still potentially kill many people.

    Wow... what an idiot.

    I have tonnes of algae in my pond but that doesn't mean I'm going to extract/purify lots of RFDF and just dump it in water ways at random. I don't understand this guy's logic, what the hell was he even thinking... This just sets a new record for irresponsibility.

    Yeah. We probably never heard about all the times people threw knives and cars through their neighbors houses at random.

    It's so bloody obvious that the States need better gun control laws, if maniacs like this guy can get their hands on guns. The mental acrobatics the NRA must put themselves through to claim otherwise is mind-boggling.

    You can't use that argument now, you'll have to go onto the next one: 'freedom'.

    Restricting the rights of the masses because of the actions of the few. I'm sure we criticise people who advocate that...

    I can't tell if you're being sarcastic, or quite what you mean by that. =/

    Or a perfect example of when people have guns, they tend to shoot things.



    I don't know why people are saying he must be mentally ill, as opposed to just an inconsiderate fool.
