GATLINBURG — A local man is facing charges of aggravated domestic assault and reckless endangerment after allegedly shooting at family members at his apartment Tuesday.

Two Gatlinburg Police officers were in the area of Reagan Drive when they heard a gunshot nearby, according to affidavits filed in court.

When they started to search the area they encountered three people, including a juvenile teen, who told them they had been visiting Clyde Matthew Thompson when he allegedly pulled a gun on them and pointed it at them while they were in an apartment.

They told officers That Thompson fired a shot after they fled the apartment, according to the warrants.

The Mountain Press does not generally disclose the names of alleged victims of domestic violence.

The officers took Thompson into custody, and he was being held Wednesday at the Sevier County Jail on three counts of aggravated domestic assault and three counts of reckless endangerment.
