WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- Williston police say a man upset with neighbors setting off fireworks responded by firing a shotgun, injuring two people.

Authorities responded to the scene Friday night. Officers say David Bartz told them he had fired his 20-gauge shotgun into the air because he was ''fed up'' with his neighbors shooting off fireworks.

Authorities say two people were injured by shotgun pellets. Bartz allegedly told law officers that the victims were ''a bunch of sissies'' and deserved what they got.

Bartz is charged with three counts of felony terrorizing, two counts of aggravated assault, three counts of reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm within city limits. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney. A listed telephone number for him could not immediately be found.
