FAIRFIELD, Conn. - A husband was arrested after Fairfield police officers responded to a home on Old Stratfield Road early Monday on the report of woman yelling, "Just shoot me” and “You could have killed me,” police said.
A neighbor called police with concerns about a loud argument coming from the house, police said. When officers arrived, they found a loaded 9mm Beretta handgun with a 15-round magazine on a table and the female victim on the couch with her 1-year-old son, police said.
She told officers that Blake Warner, 30, of Fairfield, had pushed her to the ground while she was holding the child after a financial argument.
The bedroom door had been pulled off its hinges, police said. Officers also recovered two other guns in a safe in the house: a Kimber Classic 45mm handgun with a 15-round magazine and an HK USP 9mm handgun with an eight-round magazine, police said.
All three guns were legally purchased under a Florida handgun permit, which Warner had in his possession, the police report said. None were registered in Connecticut and all were seized by officers, police said.
Warner was charged with risk of injury to a minor, disorderly conduct and second-degree reckless endangerment and held on $500,000 bond with a court date of Dec. 9.
No information regarding his court appearance was available.
