October 31, 2017 - 3:03 AM

YAZOO CITY, Miss. - Authorities in Mississippi have charged a man with aggravated assault on a police officer and domestic violence after he allegedly fired shots at the home where she and their children stay.

Yazoo City Police Chief Ron Sampson told The Clarion-Ledger that Darius Teon Moore was arrested after trying to force his way into the officer's home around 2:45 a.m. on Monday.

The chief says that after the officer refused to let Moore in, he went into the street and fired several rounds. One hit her car, and another entered her bedroom.

Authorities say Moore also fired a shot at responding officers, who did not return fire. No one was hit by any of the bullets. It's not clear if Moore has a lawyer.
