Washington police arrested a man and seized a number of guns from a home on East Fifth Street following a disturbance call Friday evening.

The man, Alan W. Soehlke, 34, is accused of firing a rifle inside the home in the 300 block of East Fifth, according to police.

Soehlke is charged with one felony count of unlawful use of a firearm by an intoxicated person, according to court documents.

Associate Circuit Judge Dave Tobben ordered a $50,000 cash-only bond in the case.

Soehlke entered a not guilty plea to the felony charge during a video arraignment Monday.

Police went to the home about 6 p.m. Friday following a report of a disturbance involving a firearm and spoke with the suspect and his wife who said they had been involved in an argument.

Soehlke’s wife said she locked herself and her children in an upstairs bedroom but went back downstairs after she heard a shot fired, according to police.

Detective Sgt. Steve Sitzes said the man had fired a shot into a wall of the home.

Sitzes said police removed over 30 guns from the home.
