Fireworks clash: man accused of firing shotgun into home

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - It's not even the 4th of July yet and already tempers are growing short where fireworks are concerned.

A man accused of firing three shotgun rounds into his neighbors' Vancouver, Wash.-area house on Sunday night after they set off fireworks appeared Monday in Clark County Superior Court.

The Columbian reports that bail was set at $200,000 for 25-year-old Corey Moulton of the Minnehaha neighborhood. Moulton was arrested for investigation of assault.

Vancouver lawyer Louis Byrd was appointed to defend him.

According to court papers, Moulton told police he was angry about his neighbors using fireworks so he fired into their bushes.
