A Maricopa man is accused of shooting out 35 windows and destroying all the other breakable objects he could find at a home in the Blue Ridge area in Coconino County.

SWAT officers moved in Friday and arrested 31-year-old Justin Kincaid. Neighbors had called 911 and complained someone had been firing continuous gunshots near their home.

Coconino County sheriff's deputies heard the gunfire when they arrived and set up a perimeter. Deputies said they could hear Kincaid playing loud music and saw him pacing back and forth.

A sheriff's lieutenant who was at the scene called the Flagstaff Police Department and requested SWAT officers to help out.

Officers used an armored vehicle and an external speaker system to communicate with the Kincaid and convinced him to walk out unarmed.

Kincaid was taken into custody without any further incident.

Authorities said they believe Kincaid had illegally occupied the home for several days before he caused significant damage to the contents and structure of the home. He allegedly armed himself with a shotgun he found inside the residence and fired it many times, breaking some of the windows, sheriff's investigators said.

Damage to the interior the home is estimated at $100,000. Sheriff's deputies said it appeared that Kincaid targeted most everything breakable, including almost all the windows, mirrors, high-end kitchen appliances and a large crystal and china collection.

During their search, deputies said they found 54 expended shotgun shells.

Detectives interviewed Kincaid who told them he left a relative's home on July 14 and drove to Blue Ridge, where he planned to camp in the forest.

While searching for a forest access, Kincaid said he found a home with an open garage door, deputies said. Kincaid said he stayed in the garage until it was obvious that no one would be returning in the near future, detectives said. 

Detectives said at some point while Kincaid was in the home he became frustrated with his circumstances and started to destroy contents.

Kincaid was booked into the Coconino County Sheriff's Detention Facility on charges of second-degree burglary, felony criminal damage and possession of a firearm while committing a felony.
