Angela Taylor is charged in Andrew County with felonies of first-degree domestic assault, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.
According to court documents, Saturday the Andrew County Sheriff’s Department responded shortly before 5 p.m. to a home in the 14000 block of County Road 401 after a man called 911 to report his wife allegedly tried to shoot him in the head with a handgun.
“Stated that Angela and him were in a verbal argument, and that Angela came out onto the deck where he was getting ready to grill food. When she came out of the door she had a black semi automatic 9mm highpoint handgun,” said Investigator Grant Gillett with the sheriff’s department. “Stated that they were yelling at each other, and she pulled the gun up and placed it in his mouth.”
The man allegedly grabbed the gun and pushed it away and said the gun discharged, just missing his head.
