GIG HARBOR, Wash. -- Douglas McRae is behind bars for firing an assault style rifle at passing cars outside of Goodman Middle School in Gig Harbor on Wednesday night.

No one was hurt in the incident, but Pierce County Sheriffs Deputies found an arsenal of weapons when they searched his home off of 36th Street Northwest.

"We found an arsenal of weapons," said a Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman. “Eight weapons in all, including an AR-15, like the rifle used at Sandy Hook."

Police don't know if McRae has a felony record or a record of mental illness, which would make it illegal for him to own a gun.

He's currently at the Pierce County jail on $200,000 bail.
