Girl shoots at dad after he pulls gun on wife

A juvenile girl attempted to shoot her father Wednesday night after he pulled a gun on his wife during a domestic violence incident, investigators said.

Deputies were called at about 7:20 p.m. to the 6200 block of South Calhan Road on a report of a shooting, said Jacqueline Kirby, an El Paso County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman.

A domestic violence incident inside a home escalated when a man pulled a gun on his wife, Kirby said.

The couple’s daughter, a juvenile, “retrieved another firearm and attempted to shoot her father,” Kirby said.

Deputies told our ABC affiliate in Colorado Springs , KRDO-TV, that "[Robert] Williams, 38, told his daughter to go get a gun from another room in the house so they could "duel.""

At least two shots were fired during the incident. No one was hit by gunfire or injured, Kirby said.
