Updated Story:

A Franklin County man accused of firing a shotgun during an altercation is facing a felony charge in the Sunday, Nov. 11, incident.

Floyd J. Huskey, 48, Sullivan, is charged with one count of first-degree domestic assault. His bond was set at $50,000 in the case.

The sheriff’s office said deputies responded to a report of an assault involving a firearm at Huskey’s home in the 4000 block of Highway H, north of Sullivan. The call came in at about 11:40 a.m.

Deputies learned that Huskey allegedly fired a 12-gauge shotgun at his son who was in a car. The man allegedly fired the gun at the driver’s side window, according to an initial report filed with the prosecuting attorney’s office.

The sheriff’s office said the suspect also allegedly threatened to shoot deputies, and himself, if they came to arrest him.

Based on that, the sheriff’s office activated the department’s SWAT team while other deputies established a containment zone around the house. Missouri State Highway Patrol troopers responded to assist deputies at the scene.

While deputies were establishing a perimeter around the property they learned that Huskey had left with a relative prior to deputies arriving at the scene.

The relative drove the suspect to the Sullivan police department where he surrendered to deputies.

Huskey then was taken to the county jail for booking and processing. A judge later signed the felony warrant charging the man.

The $50,000 cash-only bond includes a special provision that Huskey not have any contact with the victim in the case.
