NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Police say officers shot and wounded a man holding a woman at gunpoint in a Tennessee residence hours after she filed an order of protection against him.
Nashville Police spokesman Don Aaron told news outlets officers fired at 52-year-old Michel Louka Guirguis when they saw him pointing a gun at the woman lying on the floor of the Nashville home. Aaron said the woman and a 10-year-old suffered gunshot wounds. He said they are at a hospital in stable condition. The suspect is in critical condition.
Officers responded to the apartment about 5 a.m. Tuesday when a juvenile called to report her father was breaking in. Aaron said an emergency protection order had been filed Monday night against Guirguis and officers arrived to gunfire and screaming.
Police say a second child wasn’t injured.
