A man is facing a string of charges after a firearm was allegedly discharged outside a Geraldton house last night.

No-one was hurt in the incident.

Police allege the man went to a house in Spalding about 10.30pm, discharged the firearm several times and then left the scene in a white Hyundai Accent with two other men.

Police will allege the occupants of the house are known to the accused.

The vehicle was stopped by police on the Brand Highway a short time later, where three men were taken into custody and a firearm was seized.

A 28-year-old Glenfield man has been charged with one count each of committing an unlawful act with intent to harm, possessing a firearm/ammunition without a licence, discharging a firearm to cause fear, possessing a firearm in circumstances of aggravation, unlawfully discharging a firearm from or across a road and threatening to kill.

Two other men are assisting police with inquiries.
