2300 block Cowan Blvd, 10/16 10:40 a.m. A resident called police when his 5-year-old son
found a bullet hole through the wall of a bedroom. The investigating officer further discovered
that the bullet had lodged into the side of the bedroom dresser. Police determined that the fired
round came from the adjacent apartment, so officers cleared that residence and found that its
occupant was not at home. The suspect was contacted at work and he returned to Fredericksburg
to speak to investigators. The suspect gave consent for officers to search his vehicle and his
apartment and a total of four firearms were recovered and seized for evidence and safekeeping.
Alexander Furgason, 25, of Fredericksburg was arrested and charged with reckless handling of a

attempt to check on his neighbors or report the incident to authorities. An additional charge has
been obtained against Furgason charging him with unlawful discharge of a firearm into an
occupied dwelling, a Class 6 felony.
