NORTH WEBSTER — A North Webster man was arrested after threatening to shoot a woman.
Ron L. Raisor, 54, 117 EMS W30A1 Lane, North Webster, is charged with intimidation with a deadly weapon, a level 5 felony; and criminal recklessness while armed with a deadly weapon and pointing a firearm, both level 6 felonies.
On May 7, Kosciusko County Sheriff’s officers went to a location regarding a domestic complaint involving shots fired. Upon arrival, officers spoke with a person who said a woman came to their residence after Raisor had fired a gun and pointed a gun at her.
According to court documents, the person went to the residence and spoke with Raisor, who said he had a gun and that the woman was lucky he didn’t shoot her. Officers then met with the woman, who was inside the person’s home. The woman said she told Raisor she was leaving the residence and was packing items when she heard a gunshot inside the home.
The woman found Raisor in a bedroom with a handgun; he allegedly pointed the firearm at the woman and threatened to shoot and kill her multiple times. The woman left the home and went to a neighbor’s residence.
The officers then spoke with Raisor about the incident. A man at the home with Raisor said he had taken possession of the firearm and provided it to officers.
Raisor admitted to firing the handgun inside the home but said he was not trying to shoot the woman. Two men at the home with Raisor said the woman told them about the incident. They went to the home to make sure Raisor did not injure himself or the woman.
While searching the residence, officers found a bullet hole in a bedroom door. They also found a spent shell casing in a trash can outside the home.
Raisor was arrested and has since been released on a $5,250 surety and cash bond. He has an initial hearing at 10:30 a.m. Monday, June 14.
