Humptulips man arrested for “shooting up the family home”

HUMTULIPS, Wash. – A 59-year-old Humptulips man was arrested last night after the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office reports he was “stressed by the holidays” and “shooting up the family home” with a revolver. Undersheriff Dave Pimentel said the man’s wife, daughter and grandchildren were inside the home on Forbes Lane when he began shooting the television and other household items just after 9 Monday night. No one was injured, Pimentel said the man was arrested for second-degree domestic violence assault, reckless endangerment, unlawful possession of a firearm and resisting arrest.
