A Greenwood teen was arrested Wednesday after he reportedly pointed a handgun at his step-sister and three of her friends.

Caleb Jordan Shropshire, 18, of 105 Overlook Drive, has been charged with breach of peace and pointing and presenting a firearm in connection with the incident.

According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were dispatched to Shropshire’s residence at about 9 p.m. Wednesday night after receiving a report of a man with a gun. Dispatch notified deputies en route that a man had allegedly been pointing a handgun at four females at the residence and that the power had gone out at the residence.

According to the report, deputies arrived and discovered the house to be dark. After searching the perimeter and the inside of the house, the homeowner arrived and unlocked an exterior door leading to the basement. Deputies located Shropshire in the basement. Shropshire initially denied there was a gun at the residence before telling deputies where it was hidden. Deputies recovered a .380 caliber handgun behind a board in a storage closet in the basement. The gun had a fully loaded magazine containing eight hollow point bullets. Shropshire denied having the gun out or pointing it at anyone. Shropshire said he did not like the girls because they were all “pill poppers.”

According to the report, deputies spoke with Shropshire’s step-sister who said she received a text from Shropshire saying she and her friends needed to leave the house before he got there and that he would do whatever necessary to get them from the home, including pulling a gun on them. Shropshore also threatened to damage on of the girls’ cars if it was parked in his spot. Moments later, Shropshire arrived and discovered the girls outside. Shropshire then went inside and began locking doors so the girls could not get back in the house. Shropshire then came back outside and began arguing with the girls. Shropshire then pulled out the handgun and popped in a magazine before pointing the gun at the girls. The girls ran inside and locked themselves in a bedroom. The girls all said they could hear Shropshire slamming doors inside the residence before he went outside and cut the power off at the breaker box.
