Homeowner and Repair Man Draw Guns on Each Other in Washington County

A homeowner and a worker drew guns at each other on July 15 in Washington County.

According to Washington County Sheriff’s Office,  at 11:14 am deputies were dispatched to the a residence in the 7500 block of Hickory Dr. in the Town of Farmington for a report of a female who pointed a shotgun at the caller and then fired the weapon into the air.

The caller, a 40-year-old Village of Jackson man, was at the residence at the request of the homeowner to fix some weather stripping on the garage door.

The female resident became involved in a verbal altercation with the victim about the work to be done and then went back into the residence after telling the worker to leave.

When she heard hammering on the garage, she decided to arm herself with a .410 ga. shotgun and confront him again.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, she then chose to open the overhead door where the event escalated to the point of yelling and cursing between the two.

 That that point, she pointed the gun at the worker and then fired into the air.

This prompted the man to retrieve his pistol and aim it at the female’s chest and head illuminated with the laser on the pistol. He was a valid CCW holder and told the dispatchers while he was on the phone prior to arrival of the deputies. The 68-year-old female was arrested and brought to jail.
