Two Aurora men are in jail after a domestic altercation led to a shooting.

Authorities responded to a residence on Hanover Avenue in Aurora after receiving a report of a domestic fight with a firearm on Friday.

Zachary Murray, 24, told an Aurora Police Officer that he had retrieved a handgun and rifle in response to a disagreement and fight earlier in the evening, police said.

“Zachary Murray and his half-brother Joshua Sigmon, struggled over the rifle,” Aurora Acting Chief Joshua Daugherty said in a release. “During the struggle, Zachary suffered a gunshot would to his right thigh.”

Murray was treated and released from Dearborn County Hospital and later booked into the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center. He is facing three felony charges including Intimidation with a Deadly Weapon, Criminal Recklessness with a Deadly Weapon and Pointing a Firearm.

“Search Warrants were obtained and numerous items of evidence were recovered from inside the residence,” Daugherty indicated.

Police later apprehended Patrick Murray, the owner of the residence. He was arrested and charged with Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Paraphernalia, both Class A Misdemeanors and Maintaining a Common Nuisance, Class D Felony.
