BUTTE - A Butte man has been charged with attempted deliberate homicide after allegedly firing a gun multiple times at the window of a residence while the victim was inside.

Court documents allege that 21-year-old Conner Tex Thomas Webster shot at a residence in the 200 block of Hummingbird Lane around 1 a.m. on Tuesday, March 7, 2023.

The victim reportedly saw a truck backed into his driveway and turned on a light inside the residence, at which point Webster allegedly fired approximately five rounds at the residence.

According to court documents, the victim had to drop to the ground to avoid being hit as the bullets pierced through the interior of the house.
