Police in Bucks County, Pennsylvania say a man accused of firing a gun at a neighbor's house, breaking a window, said the reason he fired the gun was because it was the only way he knew how to unload it.

According to the Bucks County Courier Times, 31-year-old George Byrd IV, who is prohibited from possessing a firearm after being found guilty of felony burglary when he was 17, at first denied firing multiple shots at his neighbor's house.

During his arraignment, however, Byrd reportedly admitted to shooting the gun because, according to the Courier Times, he is "unfamiliar with guns and didn't know how to unload ammunition."

A search warrant for Byrd's home was obtained and police reportedly found various handgun ammunition, a .357 revolver, a 12-gauge double barrel shotgun, and an M77 long rifle.

No one was injured in the shooting, and Byrd is being held on a $20,000 bail.
