Last night a 65 year old Coonabarabran man allegedly fired a .223 calibre rifle into the house where his 61 year old wife was during an apparent domestic dispute. Around 8pm Mudgee LAC police were called when a shot was fired after a verbal argument. Officers from the Mudgee LAC arrested the man and searched the property finding the rifle as well as other guns registered to the man, and an AK-47.

The man has been charged with fire firearm in manner likely to injure person, armed with intent to commit indictable offence, common assault, intimidation, and possess unregistered prohibited firearm and will appear in Dubbo court today.
