A Grand Junction man is in jail after allegedly using a nail gun to shoot a co-worker up to 20 times.

Police say most of the June 4th attack was captured on a surveillance video of a home improvement store. Police say the video shows 27-year-old Jacob Bertrand spraying lacquer thinner on the neck, shoulder and back of a male co-worker, throwing a trash can at him before shooting him in the chest with the nail gun, and at least once on the left side of his nose.

Police say the victim suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Bertrand was arrested Tuesday and was at the Mesa County Jail on $25,000 bond. Bertrand faces charges of menacing, reckless endangerment and second-degree assault.
