The Clark County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man they say ran away Wednesday after allegedly assaulting and shooting at his wife inside their home.
Deputies are searching for 41-year-old Joseph Dewayne Clower, who they say broke into the home located at 1363 Old Ruckerville Road, attacked, then shot at, his wife, Melissa Clower, according to Clark County Sheriff Berl Perdue Jr.
Joseph Clower moved out of the house a couple of days earlier, but returned Wednesday morning, Perdue said.
“Melissa Clower called and said that when she refused to let Joseph Clower in, he kicked the door down, assaulted and shot at her. She finally got away and left the house and called us,” Perdue said.
The woman told deputies that after she left the residence, she heard another shot and thought Joseph Clower might have shot himself.
