Aggravated assault, 13000 block of Frenchman Mountain Road, Conway.
A woman made contact with deputies to report that her husband had accidently shot himself. When deputies arrived at the home, they discovered a man sitting in a chair under the carport of the home. He had a gunshot wound to the left shoulder.
The man stated that he had pointed the gun to his chest in an effort to make his son think he was going to shoot himself, but thought the safety was engaged on the weapon.
The man's son stated that his father had been off his medication and had been making threats to him the entire day. The son told the deputies that his father had tried to shoot at him in the yard after the man accidentally shot himself and that the man was abusive toward his wife.
The man's wife confirmed her son's account of the shooting and the man was taken to the hospital for his injuries.
