Domestic Argument Ends With Gunshot, Nobody Injured

Droves of Glendora officers surrounded an apartment complex after they learned a gun was in play during a domestic argument Thursday morning.

Police responded to the argument at 6:24 a.m. in the 600 block of South Scott Place and surrounded the building after being told by the female half that her husband was holding a gun, said Cpt. Joe Ward of Glendora Police.

Upon arriving, officers heard a single gunshot coming from within the apartment.

The female exited the apartment, holding an 8-month-old baby, and appeared to be fine. The male exited about 10 minutes later and was taken into custody without incident. A spent shell casing and handgun were located inside the apartment, Ward said.

28-year-old Jonathan Atkins was booked on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a handgun, child endangerment, discharging a firearm and criminal threats. County booking records show Atkins is bing held in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Residents in the neighborhood were checked and no one was hurt.

Atkins’ initial court date is set for April 20 at the West Covina Courthouse.
