Jefferson County deputies arrested a man in Forestdale, alleging he attacked his family and then pulled a weapon on deputies.
Jason Hill, 24, is charged with three counts of attempted murder, possession of marijuana, domestic violence, chemical endangerment of a minor child, carrying a pistol without a license and resisting arrest.
Deputies say his 21-year-old wife called for help about 11:30 p.m. Thursday, saying Hill attacked her and their two-year-old son. The wife also said she struck her husband with her car while attempting to get away from him.
Deputies returned with her to the house in the 1100 block of Curtis Lane off of Cherry Lane. Inside they home, deputies say they found marijuana in the home and the child unattended but unharmed.
They say Hill then returned to the house he pulled a pistol when told to show his hands.After a struggle, deputies disarmed and Hill and arrested him.
The whole incident comes as a shock to one neighbor, who didn't want to share her identity but describes Hill as "a nice guy." She says she is keeping the family in her prayers.
Another neighbor, Calvin Gray, lives nearby but doesn't know the Hill family. He's concerned about something like this happening so close.
"I'm kinda shocked by it because, like I said, it's normally so quiet around here," he said. "Makes you want to get to know your neighbors, see who's all in your neighborhood."
Hill is being held in the Jefferson County Jail on no bond.
