IM suspect identified; charged with assault with intent to murder

IRON MOUNTAIN — An Iron Mountain man faces several felony charges, including assault with intent to murder, in connection with a disturbance Wednesday night at Park Ridge Mobile Home Park.

Bond has been set at $750,000 for 40-year-old Christopher Anderson, who remains lodged at the Dickinson County Correctional Center, said Edwin C. Mattson, director of police and fire services.

The charge of assault with intent to murder carries a maximum penalty of up to life in prison.

Anderson was arrested after police received a complaint Wednesday night that a man had discharged a shotgun several times in the area of the mobile home park.

It was reported about 11:43 p.m. that the man, who was intoxicated, left in a car while still armed with the shotgun, said Mattson.

Police located the vehicle about 10 minutes later on Oslo Avenue, where Anderson was taken into custody on numerous criminal charges and the weapon was recovered, Mattson said.

There were no injuries.
