AZ: Son fires "warning shot" to stop Assault
At this point, according to the son, Thomas turned around and pushed through the gate charging him. Thomas then headed onto his mom’s property. His mother eventually joined him, armed, with both intending to stop Thomas from leaving and causing further damage to a fence. Thomas tried to leave and punched the 72-year-old resident and her son in the face. Thomas continued to physically assault both he and his mom. As a result, the son stated he fired a warning shot from a revolver into the ground intending to convince Thomas to cooperate until deputies arrived.
