    Delaware State Police have arrested a man after shots were fired near a neighbor's home. Police believe the shooting was provoked by a dispute over ATVs.

    Troopers were called to Firetower Road in Camden-Wyoming about 6:30 p.m. Monday for a complaint about ATVs being driven on the road.

    Police taked to some youths, but no arrests were made.

    Troopers notified 66-year-old James Erbaugh, who had made the complaint, and said he seemed unhappy with the outcome.

    Troopers were called back to the area a short time later for a report of a shooting.

    Police say Erbaugh fired several shots from a .22 caliber handgun in the direction of a dirt pile about 160 feet from a neighbor's home.

    Erbaugh was charged with seven counts of reckless endangering and other offenses.
