CASSVILLE, Wis. - A Grant County man faces charges after allegedly shooting a handgun into the ground between him and where his fiancee and child were standing, officials said.

Around 8:40 p.m. Grant County sheriff’s deputies responded to a residence on Brewery Hollow Road for a report of a domestic disturbance that involved a man discharging a handgun during an argument with his fiance, according to a release.

Investigators said David McNerney, 44, of Cassville, and his fiancee had been arguing while in Eastman, and on their way home McNerney said he was going to kill his fiancee, their son, their dog and himself when they got home.
