A man shot by Gwinnett County police officers earlier this month after allegedly threatening his ex-wife and children has been arrested on charges related to the incident.
Online records show Steven Gerard McCollum, 41, of Covington, was booked into the Gwinnett County jail Wednesday afternoon and charged with three counts of aggravated assault. A Gwinnett County police spokesman confirmed the arrest was connected to the July 12 incident in Grayson that left McCollum wounded, but directed further inquiries to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, which is investigating the shooting.
A GBI spokeswoman did not immediately respond to messages left Wednesday night.
Gwinnett County police responded to the Mission Oak Drive home of McCollum’s ex-wife at about 8:30 p.m. on July 12. According to police, McCollum was armed and “threatened to kill everyone,” including his former spouse and their two teenage sons.
The teens reportedly ran from the house and called 911, and responding officers encountered McCollum outside the residence “still armed with a handgun.”
“(McCollum) refused to drop his weapon and was shot multiple times,” Sgt. Brian Doan said at the time.
McCollum was hospitalized following the incident, though no information regarding his condition at the time has been released.
Gwinnett County jail records show McCollum is being held without bond.
