An elderly man from Seneca arrested on a charge of attempted murder...
Oconee County Sheriff Office Deputies were called to an address on Owens Road Tuesday afternoon after reports of shots being fired.
Once on scene, Investigators learned an argument turned physical between 68 year old Guy Jimmy Shook and a female, who lives at the residence.
After the female cried out for help, Shook was confronted by another resident of the home, a male, and made threats to kill him.
Investigators say Shook then retrieved a handgun from inside the home and fired shots at the man once back outside.
After evidence was gathered from the scene, Shook was booked into the Oconee County Detention Center shortly after 2:00pm Tuesday.
In addition to attempted murder, Shook is also charged with Assault and Battery and Possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
A bond hearing is pending.
