A Holcomb man was arrested Wednesday on allegations of attempted second-degree murder, kidnapping, criminal threat and interference with a law enforcement officer.

According to a press release from the Garden City Police Department, Josh Lundblade, 27, Salina, came to the Finney County Law Enforcement Center Tuesday to report an incident that occurred at Prick the Skin Body Piercing and Tattoo shop, 708 N. Main St.

Lundblade alleged that he and Jason Greenfield, 35, 234 Redford Drive, Holcomb, were involved in a confrontation over stolen piercing needles.

According to GCPD Sgt. Michael Reagle, Lundblade was being accused of stealing the needles.

During the confrontation, it is alleged that Greenfield brandished a handgun and threatened Lundblade with it. While Greenfield was threatening Lundblade with the gun, he fired a round that missed Lundblade. The round then struck a chair and entered a wall in the room.

Lundblade then attempted to leave the business, but Greenfield allegedly continued to threaten him and refused to allow him to leave. Lundblade was eventually able to flee the business when Greenfield became distracted by something else going on inside.

After further investigation, Greenfield was arrested without incident on Wednesday when officers stopped his vehicle in the 500 block of North Eighth Street.

After Greenfield's arrest, officers and detectives served a search warrant at the business to further investigate the incident. Reagle said it is still under investigation.

Greenfield is being lodged in the Finney County Jail.
