Man Attemps to Threaten Wife With Gun, Unintentionally Shoots Himself Instead

Randall Floyd LovettA Tennessee man who attempted to pull a gun out during a domestic dispute ended up accidentally shooting himself in the knee. According to a report from the Maury County Sheriff’s Department:

Sarena Lovett, 55, told deputies she and her husband [Randall Floyd Lovett] had been arguing “and he had shoved her around,” the report said. “Mr. Lovett sat on the couch so she stood in front of him and leaned over toward him while they continued to argue.

“Mrs. Lovett says that Mr. Lovett reached across his body with his right hand and stuck it down into an armrest on his left side,” the report continued. “As he was pulling his hand out of the armrest, Mrs. Lovett saw the gun and it immediately discharged into his left knee.”

Before calling 911, Sarena Lovett took the gun — a Smith & Wesson .38-caliber — and locked it in a bedroom, deputies reported.

This isn't the first time the man pulled a gun on her. Back in November of 2012, Mrs. Lovett claims her husband shot through the den wall and living room wall before sticking a gun to her head. In addition to the .38-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun that the man shot himself with, police also removed a Taurus .38-caliber handgun, two .22-caliber rifles and ammunition for all the firearms.

Mr. Lovett was taken to the hospital for treatment and then arrested and charged with aggravated assault.
