On a Friday evening, 71-year-old Roger D. Washburn was spending time with two of his friends at his home. They were unsure about who the singer of a popular song was and it became the subject of a debate.

One of the men said that he believed the song was sung by Bruno Mars, but Washburn did not agree. When the man, who has been friends with Washburn for half a century, provided proof of his claim the fight continued.

Washburn allegedly grabbed a handgun and struck his friend in the face and arm with it causing it to fire, but no one was hit by the bullet. His friend reportedly defensively swung at Washburn and the gun fired a second time.

A gun was fired in Indiana Park on Monday when two grandmothers got into an argument concerning visitation of their grandchild. Both of the women are facing charges and were taken into custody for the allegations.

On June 25, 45-year-old Cristy D. Horton and 47-year-old Tammy Brickles were at Riley Park with their grown children so that one of the women could collect her grandchild for a visit. They had met there after a day that was reportedly filled with disputes between the families because Horton wanted to take her grandson to a fair at the park, and she was told she could not.

The families met at the park just after 6:00 p.m. and the child was inside of one of the cars when the grandmothers reportedly began to argue regarding visitation, and the situation became intense very rapidly. Horton purportedly grabbed a gun, resulting in her son quickly trying to get involved and to take possession of the weapon. At one point during the scuffle, the gun was discharged.
