A Greenwood man is facing gun charges following an altercation at a residence on Piedmont Avenue Friday afternoon.
According to a report from the Greenwood Police Department, police responded to a residence on Piedmont Avenue Friday just after noon in response to a fight in progress. As they arrived, police were notified that the suspects had left the scene, headed toward their residence on Edgefield Street.
According to the report, police discovered a man, later identified as Parish Domonick Davis, 22, of 2602 Edgefield Street. Davis began walking faster when he saw police coming up the street. Police stopped Davis and asked him if he was involved in the altercation on Piedmont Avenue. Davis indicated that he was and that he had gone down there to calm down a friend of his. Police observed a handgun lying in a driveway where they first located Davis.
According to the report, Davis admitted the gun was his. Davis told police that he had pulled the weapon out after a female pointed a rifle at him at the incident location. The woman that lives at the incident location told police that she heard screaming outside her home as she was getting out of the shower. She went to the porch and observed four people in the street arguing and threatening her. The woman said she felt threatened and got a .22 caliber rifle from her house. She pointed at the people gathered and said, “Four or more and I shoot.” At that point, Davis pulled out a handgun and cocked it, but never pointed it directly at the woman.
Davis was arrested and charged with unlawful carrying of a pistol and pointing and presenting a firearm at a person.
