The warrant states Richard Mays of Atlanta shot and missed his wife, which caused her to run down Humphries Hill Road, where she flagged down the Austell Fire Engine 1.
Three firefighters assisted her until Austell Police arrived.
Police reported finding the pistol outside of a business’s building inside a drainage pipe, and a shell casing was found outside near the front door, the warrant said.
Richard Mays was arrested and faces charges of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and aggravated assault.
He was given a $15,000 bond, but remains at the Cobb jail.
