WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police say a 4th of July domestic disturbance turned into multiple crimes involving a baby and a family pet.
Police say a woman called 911 reporting she got into a fight with her boyfriend Michael McMillian. She says McMillan took her car keys causing her vehicle to be left at Silver Stream Rehabilitation.
The father of the woman's baby, Anthony McAllister, came and picked her up and took her to the 1400 block of Meares Street to get their child's belongings. Police say McMillian showed up and allegedly pointed a gun at McAllister's leg while McAllister was holding his child. They say McMillan told McAllister to put the child down so he could shoot him. McAllister refused to do that.
During the incident, police say the woman tried to break the two men up, and McMillian slapped her twice in the face. McMillian then walked away, but while passing McAllister's unoccupied car, police say McMillian shot five or six times at the car.
Officers obtained warrants for McMillian for assault by pointing a gun, communicating threats, property damage and assault on a female. Police also think McMillian later went to McAllister's Morgan Street home and shot into the house hitting a pet dog in the leg.
