Police recover 145 guns from home of Michigan man after he attempted to shoot his wife
Police in Michigan discovered 145 guns in the home of a man they took into custody after he shot at his wife twice following an argument, the Oakland Press reports.
John Lewis Piotrowski, 68, was jailed and charged with assault with the intent to murder, which carries a potential sentence.
According to authorities, Piotrowski was arguing with his wife when he told her he was going to kill her and grabbed her by the neck. The woman ran to the basement to call 911, only to have her husband follow her before pointing a small handgun at her and firing twice, missing both times. After he left her, she ran outside where she waited for police.
A deputy found Piotrowski standing in the front yard with a pistol in his possession when they arrived and took him into custody.
During a search of the home, police recovered 87 rifles and 58 handguns.
Piotrowski is being held on a $500,000 bond.
