A North Brookfield man is facing charges after he allegedly fired a shotgun at another man several times during a dispute, according to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say 42-year-old Russell Bellair of North Brookfield was allegedly involved in a physical dispute at Bellair’s home on Main Street on Tuesday when Bellair grabbed his shotgun and pointed it at the other man’s head. Deputies say the man pushed the barrel of the gun away as Bellair fired the gun.

The man then ran from the residence and Bellair shot at him again as he was running, according to deputies, but he was not struck by either of the two shots.

Bellair is charged with felony first-degree reckless endangerment, misdemeanor second-degree menacing and misdemeanor fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon. He was arraigned in the Town of Hamilton Court and sent to the Madison County Jail on $2,500 cash bail or $5,000 bond. He’s scheduled to appear in court at a later date to answer the charges.
