Macon police arrested a man Saturday on multiple charges after he allegedly tried to fire a handgun at his fiancée and her child, according to a police report.
Police charged Lee McDaniel Parker, 31, of Knotts Street, with aggravated assault, cruelty to children and interfering with 911 calls. He was taken to the Bibb County jail. According to the report, Parker’s fiancée told officers that he pointed a Glock 9mm handgun at her and attempted to chamber a round, but the gun jammed.
Parker then followed her to her daughter’s room, shoving her on the bed. When her son attempted to intervene, he pushed him on the bed with his mother. He then pulled out the gun again and attempted to shoot, but it jammed again. Parker exited the house and saw the victim’s daughter on the lawn, trying to call 911. Parker took the phone and left in a green Camaro.
Parker returned while the officers were still there. He told them he was taking his belongings, including his gun, and leaving after an argument.
