SPRING VALLEY (CNS) - A 70-year-old man, who apparently shot himself after a dispute with his wife in their Spring Valley mobile home, was in sheriff's custody Sunday.
The woman called for help about 8 p.m. Saturday, and deputies were sent to the Terrace Mobile Home Estates on Sweetwater Road, where the woman met them outside, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
The woman told deputies her husband had been drinking and threatened her with a gun, Lt. Marco Garmo told the newspaper. She also said she had heard a shot fired.
Deputies tried to reach the man by telephone and used a bullhorn to order him out, but he didn't respond for two hours, Garmo said.
About 10:15 p.m., the man obeyed commands to lie on the floor just inside an open sliding glass door and stretch his hands outside, Garmo said.
Deputies took him into custody and discovered that he had a gunshot wound.
Paramedics were called to treat the man, whose name was not made public.
