WESTMINSTER — A mother-son argument over a computer ended in a gun shot and an arrest.
Emery Ross, 26, of Westminster was charged with attempted aggravated assault, domestic assault and reckless endangerment. The incident occurred at 33 Gage St., Ross' parent's home.
According to State Trooper Eric Vitali, Ross pointed a bolt action rifle at his mother, Karen Augusta, during their argument. Augusta escaped from the home while Ross' father, Bob Ross, stayed in the house to retrieve his son's rifle.
State Police arrived at the scene and talked to Ross outside the home. Vitali said Bob Ross tried wrestling the gun away until a round accidently went off. No one was injured in the melee.
Police continued dialog with Ross until he turned himself in to police. According to Vitali, Ross had two knives in his possession. They also seized four fire arms inside the house that included his bolt action rifle, a pump action shotgun, a .22 caliber semi-automatic rifle and a .22 caliber handgun.
