RAWLINS, Wyo. -– A man accused of waving a shotgun at people – including children – at the Seminoe Boat Club, on Independence Day, was in Carbon County Circuit Court on Thursday.
Rawlins resident Maksim Shakirov, 21, was arrested around 10 p.m. on July 4, according to a probable cause affidavit written by Carbon County Sheriff’s Deputy Zachary Burns.
According to the report, Shakirov had pulled a “black shotgun” out on a camping party.
On scene, one witness told Burns that a “young boy” was being chased down by the mother once he returned to the campsite with her children.
According to another man's account – later identified as James Malone – once Shakirov returned to the campsite with the children, he “ran over to his car and opened the trunk.”
This is when Shakirov was accused of pulling the firearm out of his trunk, the report states.
Subsequently, “Mr. Malone ran and tackled Max to the ground before the gun could be pointed and fired.”
Once Shakirov was let up off the ground, he hopped onto a vehicle owned by an adjacent camper and sped off.
