Ann Arbor man in custody after shooting off handgun during dispute with grandson
A 69-year-old Ann Arbor man is in police custody after firing off his handgun in anger during a fight with his 20-year-old grandson.
Ann Arbor police were dispatched to the 2900 block of Bluett Street for shots fired at 2:01 p.m. Wednesday.
The 20-year-old man had been in court earlier that day and that may have been what the dispute was about, said Sgt. Craig Flocken of the Ann Arbor Police Department. After court, the man and his mother went to the 69-year-old's house — his grandfather and her father.
The court case possibly had something to do with a domestic dispute between the 20-year-old and his mother, Flocken said.
The 69-year-old man did not want his grandson at the residence.
"He's not been the greatest grandson," Flocken said. "The grandfather wanted to make a point by shooting a round off."
There were no reported injuries. Detectives continue to investigate the matter.
