An Ooltewah man was charged with aggravated assault after he showed up at his son's home and started shooting on Sunday morning. His son's fiancee and mother were also present.
According to police, at 11:30 a.m., Ricky D. Stewart Sr. called his future daughter-in-law, asking her to tell his son that he was coming and he was "bringing it hard."
Shortly after, his son saw his father drive up. His son said Stewart was very angry and drunk, so they locked the front door.
Looking through a window, they saw him get a gun from his vehicle.
At that point, the son, his fiancee, and the mother all fled to the back of the home. When they saw Stewart holding a gun at the rear door, they all got on the floor.
According to their testimony to police, Stewart proceeded to fire five shots. When they saw him head back to the front of the house, they called 911.
At that time, Stewart started to head back to his vehicle, calling his son's fiancee on the way and telling her he was leaving.
Police were able to locate Stewart at the Church's Chicken on Brainerd Road.
