NICOLAS A. Songsong was arrested by the Department of Public Safety on Rota after he fired guns at his house while he was “very intoxicated.”

Songsong, 45, was charged with unlawful discharge of a firearm, possession or use of weapons while under the influence, assault with a dangerous weapon, disturbing the peace, and resisting arrest.

Superior Court Associate Judge Wesley Bogdan imposed a $100,000 cash bail on Songsong at the bail hearing on Tuesday.

The judge remanded Songsong to the custody of the Department of Corrections and ordered him to return to court for a preliminary hearing on Jan. 30 at 1:30 p.m. and on Feb. 10 at 9 a.m. for his arraignment.

Police stated that a female caller at Songsong’s residence in Sinapalo called for assistance on Jan. 19, 2020 at 2:51 a.m.

Upon arrival, responding officers noticed a gray pick-up truck leaving the area. As officers approached the residence, a woman identified herself as the complainant and stated that the driver of the gray truck was Songsong and that he fired guns at the house.

When police located him at his parents’ house, Songsong walked aggressively toward the officers.

He was also argumentative, uncooperative, and reeked of alcohol, police said, adding that they had to subdue Songsong after multiple attempts to gain cooperation and compliance failed.

On the ground, Songsong continued to resist arrest “by placing his hands under his chest while lying face down,” police said.

The complainant told police that Songsong had been consuming alcohol at a family gathering where he became extremely intoxicated and belligerent.

Returning to his house, Songsong continued to be belligerent and was seen carrying an unknown number of firearms, the complainant said.

While she was in a bedroom, the complainant said she could hear loud noises of what she believed to be multiple gunshots. She added that she was very afraid to look outside.

When the gunshots stopped, the complainant said she saw Songsong holding a rifle and entering the driver seat of a gray truck just before police officers arrived.

Further investigation by the police revealed that two adults and one minor were in the house when Songsong fired his guns.

At the scene of the incident, investigators recovered shell casings for a 12 gauge shotgun, a .410 shotgun and a .30 caliber firearm.

Investigators also observed damage to the glass above a kitchen door and damage to the wall inside the house that appeared to be caused by a shotgun-type bullet.

Moreover, investigators found a shotgun in a grassy area across the street from Songsong’s residence.

The truck was brought to DPS central for an inventory. Police said they found multiple ammunition in the truck similar to those that were found at the scene.
