CEDAR PARK — Witnesses told police that a man who opened fire on a family dog at The Ranch at Brushy Creek also aimed the gun at them when they saw their pet gunned down and a woman was hit by gunshot debris Sunday night, police said.
Bing Michael Yee, a 49-year-old military retiree, was arrested and charged with deadly conduct and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, Cedar Park Police Capt. Jeff Hayes said.
Yee, who holds a concealed handgun license, posted the $30,000 bail Monday at the Williamson County jail.
Police were called to the 4500 block of Zachary Run in the Ranch at Brushy Creek off Parmer Lane at 9:45 p.m., Hayes said.
Witensses told police Yee was walking his dog down the street, about the time some friends were leaving Billy Rodgers’ house and his 5-year-old Vizsla slipped out the front door and into the street.
Hayes said it was at that time that Yee produced a handgun and fired a number of rounds, striking and killing the dog and one of the rounds caused debris or shrapnel to strike a nearby woman in the arm, leaving a minor cut.
When the people outside reacted, Hayes said, Yee aimed the weapon at them, and continued to point the gun at another neighbor who stepped outside when he heard the shots.
After repeated pleas to put gun away, Yee complied before police arrived, Hayes said.
