A Harrison man is facing charges after police said he fired a shot through a bathroom door that struck a woman who was hiding from him in the bathroom.
Leon Melvin Biddy, 48, is charged with especially aggravated domestic assault and reckless endangerment.
Derita McDonough/Biddy, 46, said in the incident on Saturday she had gone to the house of Randy Hills and picked up Biddy. She said she helped him into the master bedroom and she lay down on the couch.
She said about 45 minutes later Biddy entered the living room with a shotgun and said he was going to kill her and then himself.
She said he then fired the shotgun into the ceiling, causing her to run to the bathroom and lock it.
When he could not get the door open, he shot through it, she said. The shot hit under her chin and in the shoulder. She said she climbed into the bathtub because she was afraid of being shot again.
She said Biddy was able to get through the bathroom door. When he saw that she had been shot, he lay the gun down and asked to see her injuries. He told her that if she went to the hospital "he would be done."
She said she was able to get by him and run next door to ask for help.
Police said she had what appeared to be a gunshot wound under her chin. She was taken to the hospital by ambulance.
After a short standoff, Biddy was taken into custody.
