SOUTHINGTON, CT (WFSB) -

A shotgun was fired and a juvenile was threatened over the course of a domestic incident in Southington.

Police did not release any of the names of the people involved because they were all considered victims, but said they arrested a female and a male on Monday.

They said they were called to a home on Hickory Hill Road just after 7:30 p.m. for a report of a family dispute.

They heard reports of a young person being out of control and throwing items.

Officers said they learned that the female pointed a shotgun at the juvenile during an argument. She then shot the gun into the ceiling.

The male came home after learning about the incident, according to police. While he was home, the young person began to act out again. The juvenile tried to strike the man; however, he was able to subdue the juvenile.

Police also said it appeared that the man pointed a handgun at the young person and threatened to fire.

Officers said they found that a gun had been fired inside the home. They said the man hid the shotgun after learning about the incident. Neither the shotgun nor the handgun were said to have been properly stored.

The female was charged with disorderly conduct, first-degree threatening, interfering with an officer, risk of injury, unlawful discharge of a firearm, unlawful storage of a firearm and reckless endangerment. Her bond was set at $75,000.
