A Conyers man was arrested for firing a rifle during a verbal altercation involving missing money that totaled $15.

Marko Miskic, 18, allegedly fired one round from a Marlin 30-30 lever-action rifle Nov. 11 because he believed that another young male stole $15 dollars from his 17-year-old girlfriend's wallet.

No one was harmed in the incident.

A nearby neighbor in the 2500 block of Lakeshore Drive called the authorities stating, "The neighbors are at it again."
According to the deputy's report, the couple accused the 19-year-old male victim of taking the $15 during the time the victim went to retrieve his wallet which was left in Miskic's vehicle. The female Conyers resident also had her wallet in Miskic's vehicle during this time.

The victim vehemently denied taking the money. While the victim was arguing with the young female, he told the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office deputy that, "he saw Marko holding a black and brown ‘sniper rifle'. Then he saw Marko shoot the gun."

The victim couldn't identify where Miskic was allegedly facing the firearm.

At first, Miskic denied even having a weapon, but he eventually confessed to having the rifle. He went to the garage of the residence at 2475 Lakeshore Drive in Conyers Rockdale County and retrieved the weapon, which was "in the back left corner of the garage under his house." It had a brown stock, black barrel and a scope.

A spent shell casing matching the rifle was found at the scene.

"Marko told (the victim) that, ‘If he came on his property again, he would kill him,'" it states in the deputy report.
Miskic was arrested for aggravated assault and reckless conduct. He's now in the Rockdale County Jail.

Miskic is the son of a RCSO jail deputy.

It's unknown whether or not the female found her missing $15.
