Hello and thank you for requesting me again.
I am working on your answer now and will post it here shortly. Thank you for your patience while I prepare your answer.
Hello again, Andrew.It looks like you are waiting for me in another thread, but I believe you are referring to the same incident in both threads, so I will address your concerns here and have the other thread closed.You could sue the individual for property damage and for intentional infliction of emotional distress (IIED) in a civil case. IIED is usually a difficult type of case to prevail on, but it might be viable under the facts you have presented since he does appear to be trying to cause you emotional distress. I would also consider requesting that the court enter a restraining order against this individual since they do appear unstable and the fact he called you shortly after the shots were fired is circumstantial evidence that he fired the shots. It may not be enough to criminally convict him, but the burden of proof only requires a preponderance of the evidence show it was him in a civil case.It would be best to retain a local civil litigation attorney to represent you in this matter and pursue these claims on your behalf.
