Richard Bruns, 53, faces criminal charges for allegedly trying to shoot a woman at their home, then facing deputies in an armed standoff at an area hotel.
According to an arrest affidavit, Bruns got into an argument with a woman, whose name was redacted under Florida’s Marsy’s Law. He got mad, left their home, returned, and fired two gunshots at the woman while she was facing her bed, deputies said.
“The projectiles struck a mirror near her on the wall and broke,” deputies wrote. “In fear, the victim ran toward the couch while the offender was still armed and yelling at her.”
Fund the police? Pushed by Biden, Democrat mayors divided how to use COVID money to fight crime
One mayor said he views the directive more as 'long-term programmatic changes' and less about "Clinton-era 'we're just going to pay for more cops.'"An old manufacturing town of 64,000 on Lake Erie, about 30 miles west of Cleveland, Lorain has grappled with 11 homicides so far in 2021, up from five at this time in 2020 and seven total in 2019. Rattling the city further, two auxiliary police officers were injured this month by bullets fired into their vehicle.
Bruns shot at the ceiling and kept yelling, the woman told the authorities. The defendant allegedly kept firing and made no secret of his intentions.
“I’ll put this one in your head,” he allegedly said.
The woman fled the home on foot.
The case subsequently moved to the Fairfield Inn in Holiday, Fla. Fire and rescue asked deputies for help regarding a man with a firearm. A deputy responded and checked out room 416 with a hotel employee who unlocked the door. According to the arrest affidavit, the deputy announced “Sheriff’s Office” several times and found Bruns unresponsive in a hallway within the room. (A press release alternatively described Bruns as “unconscious.”) The deputy checked on him and asked if he was okay, but the deputy received no response. He shook Bruns again. This time, he received a “startled look” from the defendant, but Bruns went back to sleep. The deputy then tried to get Bruns’s gun, but Bruns allegedly pulled the weapon and pointed it at the deputy with his finger on the trigger. The deputy backed out of the room. Bruns barricaded himself in the hotel room for several hours but ended up turning himself in, deputies said.
UK police charge 3rd Russian in 2018 poisoning of ex-spy
LONDON (AP) — British police said Tuesday they are charging a third Russian suspect in the 2018 nerve agent attack on a former Russian agent in England. Scotland Yard said prosecutors believe there is sufficient evidence to charge a man known as Sergey Fedotov with conspiracy to murder, attempted murder, possessing and using a chemical weapon, and causing grievous bodily harm. Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, were targeted in a nerve agent attack in March 2018 in Salisbury, England, that British authorities said had almost certainly approved been “at a senior level of the Russian state.” Moscow has vehemently denied the allegations.
“The defendant stated he does not remember pointing a firearm at the deputy,” authorities wrote.
Deputies said the ammunition at the scene of the attempted murder matched the ammo found on Bruns.
Bruns faces a count each of attempted murder and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer. Online records do not name an attorney of record.
