FARMINGTON – A man who police say shot a gun in a Wilton apartment was indicted by the Franklin County grand jury Wednesday on charges of terrorizing and reckless conduct.

Daniel Jackson, 25, of Jay allegedly fired a gun inside an apartment in the Fernwald complex off Route 2 around 1 a.m July 12. No one was injured in the shooting, and by the time police and a tactical team surrounded the complex, Jackson had fled the area. He was picked up a week later in Rumford.

Wilton Police Chief Wayne Gallant said Jackson is wanted on a felony charge of escape in New York state.

Jackson is being held in the Franklin County jail on the two charges, both felonies.

A man who police say attempted to shoot a police officer in the head last June was indicted Wednesday on charges of aggravated attempted murder and reckless conduct.

Police were called to the Jay home of William C. Burhoe, 51, after being alerted to a domestic disturbance there. When state police and members of Franklin County Sheriff’s Department and the Jay Police Department arrived at the home, Burhoe started shooting at police, according to Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland. Trooper Randall Keaton returned fire, shooting Burhoe in the leg. Burhoe is being held on $300,000 bail at the Franklin County Jail. The aggravated attempted murder charge carries a maximum penalty of life in prison.

Earl F. Quirrion, 81, of Wilton was charged Wednesday with a felony count of unlawful sexual contact. He was arrested June 16 and accused of touching a child under the age of 14 sometime within the past year, Chief Wayne Gallant said.
