WENATCHEE- A Wenatchee man who was arrested last Thursday for allegedly shooting at Lincoln elementary school students with an air-soft pellet rifle is back in jail this morning for domestic assault.

Captain Edgar Reinfeld with the Wenatchee Police Department says the man had just bailed out of jail following his arrest last week. Reinfeld says the man, identified as 18-year-old Victor Morgan had reportedly walked onto the Lincoln school campus around 5:25 in the afternoon and started firing the plastic pellets at students who were attending after-school programs. . .

Reinfeld says it appears none of the students were struck by the pellets. Lincoln School officials ordered the campus locked down until Morgan was apprehended. Captain Reinfeld says Morgan was arrested again Sunday after he reportedly assaulted his mother. Details are pending in that case.
