A domestic disturbance that involved shots fired ended with a Tell City man going to jail.
Around 3:20 P.M. Central Time, Tell City 911 received an emergency call from 8520 Aster Road, which is about 1.5 miles east of Tell City. The caller informed dispatchers that Christopher Ray Salter, 35, Tell City, had fired a 12 gauge shotgun in the direction of a female and two males.
After arriving on scene, officers learned that earlier in the day, Salter had been in a physical domestic dispute, in which he had shoved a female against a refrigerator and out the door. The female later returned with her father and uncle to pick up clothing and other personal items.
After they arrived, Salter came outside and again became involved in an altercation, this time with all three people. A short time later, Salter went back inside, retrieved the shotgun, and threatened all three, insisting that they get off of his property. Salter then fired a round into the left rear tire of the female’s father’s van, while all three were standing next to the vehicle.
Salter was taken into custody without further incident and was transported to the Perry County Jail. The Tell City Police Department worked with the State Police during the investigation.
