Deputies who executed a search warrant at the property were able to retrieve a 22 calibur rifle that is believed to be the weapon involved.
Lt. Smethers said the property had been used for marijuana cultivation, but they are not sure if that is related. Mozzetti is being held at County jail on a no-bail warrant.
