SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A man accused of threatening two women and several children at an Isleta Pueblo home with a rifle has been found guilty of federal assault and firearms charges.

Acting U.S. Attorney Steven Yarbrough says a jury in Santa Fe convicted 26-year-old Federico Lujan late Friday of discharging a firearm and two aggravated assault charges.

Prosecutors say Lujan, of Serafina, showed up at the residence July 5, 2012 with a .22 caliber rifle carrying almost 50 rounds of ammunition.

They say he fired shots outside while the two women gathered the 10 children inside to safety.

Authorities say Lujan believed his stolen baseball cap was inside.

When one of the women approached him and denied the accusation, Lujan allegedly threatened to kill her and fired his rifle.

No one was hurt.
