Michael Wallace Pilgrim, 63, of 154 N. Greenwood Ave., Ware Shoals was arrested Wednesday and charged with high and aggravated domestic violence.

At about 2:15 p.m., Ware Shoals police went to an East Fleming Street residence where a woman said a man had locked her out of her residence, and earlier hurt her while trying to force her out of bed, then fired a gun in the bedroom and threatened to kill her, according to a report.

The woman gave police the shell casing from when the man fired, and told them he was still inside. Officer forced their way in and found the man hiding in the bathroom. The man told officers they had an argument, but denied ever firing a gun — though he did tell officers he had a gun in his hand while in the bedroom, but that he gave it to someone, the report said.
