LIMA — A rural Elida teenager who injured himself and his mother and reportedly threatened to “shoot everyone” at the home of his grandparents faces charges of inducing panic and domestic violence.
According to a report from the Allen County Sheriff’s Office, Aaron J. Hunter, 18, went to the home of his grandparents in the 6000 block of Piqua Road on Saturday and got into an argument over a vehicle he had previously purchased from them. During the argument, Hunter reportedly threatened his grandparents and his 22-year-old brother Jake.
Jake Hunter attempted to restrain his brother after Aaron Hunter reportedly made threats to “shoot everyone at the home.”
Aaron Hunter reportedly returned to his home, which was nearby, and retrieved a kitchen knife and began to harm himself before he was stopped by his mother and another brother.
Hunter left the home and began walking toward his grandparents’ home, but was stopped. He discarded the knife in a field when approached by responding deputies.
