The Douglas County Sheriff’s Department says a witness heard arguing followed by gunshots inside the apartment. Latimer was booked on felony charges of assault in the second degree, menacing, illegal discharge of a firearm, misdemeanor charges of prohibited use of a weapon, and reckless endangerment.
“There’s an entire back story to this situation that constitutes one of the most highly provocative situations you can imagine,” Latimer’s attorney Harvey Steinberg said in a statement, according to ESPN. “Please withhold judgment until all the facts of what took place that night are known.”
One person suffered minor injuries during the reported shooting.
“We are aware of the situation and have informed the NFL League Office,” the Redskins said in a statement. “We will continue to gather more information and have no further comment at this time.”
Latimer has been with the Redskins since April. He’s also played for the Giants and Broncos during his six-year career. Latimer has recorded 70 receptions, 935 receiving yards, and six touchdowns during his career.
Latimer has since posted a $25,000 bond.
