CLEVELAND, TN (WRCB) -
Cleveland police say a man was arrested Thursday night for shooting his daughter with a flare gun.
It happened around 8:00 p.m. at a home in the 2100 block of Blackburn Road.
Officials say the victim, Michelle Rich, was shot in the hand with a flare gun by her father Gary Price.
The flare set a small fire at the home. The Cleveland Fire Department responded and put it out.
Police say a struggle ensued as James Rich, the victim's husband, attempted to catch Price after the shooting. Rich was assaulted by Price before his father-in-law drove off in Rich's 2007 Ford Taurus.
The car was later spotted near J Mack Circle, where Price was detained.
Price is facing charges of Attempted 1st Degree Murder and Domestic Assault.
