A Brazos County man is in jail following an incident with Robertson County authorities.

Dwight Rabe, 52, was taken into custody after officers arrived at the home on Highway 79 north of Franklin. No one was injured, but at least one firearm was confiscated.

Authorities received a 911 call reporting gunshots shortly before noon Wednesday.

Robertson County Sheriff Gerald Yezak refused to speculate about what may have led to the shooting, but he did confirm Rabe was at the home visiting relatives.

Rabe is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Sheriff Yezak says additional charges are pending.
