Norwalk police arrested a man who reportedly fired a rifle in his home during an argument with his wife.

Brandon Reilly, 31, of 63 Cline St., was taken into custody on a felony domestic violence charge Thursday evening.

Reilly and his wife reportedly had been arguing in their home when, according to his wife, he choked her. Reilly also allegedly threatened to shoot her and fired a .22 caliber rifle into the closet floor.

Capt. Eric Hipp said Reilly’s mother-in-law called 9-1-1 after she heard the gun shot. Reilly’s wife was able to wrestle away the rifle, Hipp said.

Reilly complied with officers’ orders and had calmed down by the time they arrived, Hipp said.

A report was sent to the Norwalk law director for the consideration of additional charges. Reilly remained in custody Thursday night at the Huron County Jail.
