PLYMOUTH - A Terryville man was arrested over the weekend for allegedly firing a gun during a domestic incident and threatening to shoot a man.

Andrew Taillon, 50, of 103 Griffin Road, has been accused of pointing a 12 gauge shotgun at a man on Sunday, in the early morning hours, during an argument, according to the police report.

Plymouth police and backup from Thomaston and state police responded to a local home at about 1:46 p.m., after one of the four people there called 911 when she heard Taillon say he would allegedly shoot one of the two male victims. The victims told police Taillon became upset at some point during the night before he retrieved a shotgun from the home.

According to the report, Taillon allegedly fired multiple shots, some of which the female victim believes was intended for one of the males. At one point, one of the victims was able to wrestle the gun away and hide it in some nearby bushes outside the home. Police recovered the weapon and another rifle in the home.

Taillon faces charges of first-degree threatening, illegal discharge of a firearm and second-degree breach of peace. He is free on $150,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Bristol Superior Court on June 21.
