Police arrested a Stockton Springs man Tuesday afternoon, May 8, after he allegedly grew angry with a woman who was at his home and fired a handgun at her vehicle as she and a friend were leaving his residence.

Kirt Damon Jr., 23, was arrested on charges of reckless conduct with a firearm and criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon following the incident, which Stockton Springs Police Department Supervisor Merl Reed said occurred at Damon’s residence on Damon Road at about 12:30 p.m.

Reed said police received a call from two women who were at Damon’s home to collect personal belongings. As the women were gathering those items, Damon grew angry and told one of the women, with whom Damon is acquainted, that if she didn’t hurry up, get her things and leave he was going to “shoot at her vehicle.”

As it turned out, Damon kept that promise.

“As they were leaving, they saw Kirt Damon pointing a gun at their vehicle,” said Reed. “Then he shot the gun.”

When Officers Harry Patterson III, Ben Seekins and Reed arrived at the scene, Damon reportedly admitted to firing the handgun, but denied firing at the car. He further told the officers he felt it was his right to fire a warning shot after asking an unwanted guest to leave his property.

Damon was arrested and transported to the Waldo County Jail in Belfast, and has since been transferred to Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset. Reed said as of 9 a.m. Wednesday morning, Damon remained in custody.
