Officers were called Sunday night to Clement Way for a domestic dispute involving firearms and arrived to find Joy E. Norman, 46, standing outside. She reported her boyfriend, Jerry Dean McCune, 44, had stuck a .45-caliber gun to her chest and threatened to kill her if she left after she packed her belongings. Norman had visible injuries to her face and head that she said were caused when McCune punched her and hit her with a beer can. Accompanied by East Liverpool officers, township officers went to the house, where they saw McCune in the doorway and ordered him out at gunpoint. McCune said he and Norman were arguing about her "blowing money" at the casino and she began attacking him while he was lying on the couch, saying she bit his hand. Officers reported he had visible marks to his hand and forehead. McCune was charged with domestic violence and all guns were removed from the home.
