BATAVIA, OH (FOX19) - A Clermont County man is behind bars after police say he fired shots inside his mother's home when she wouldn't let him borrow a car.

It happened just before 5 p.m. on Monterey Maple Grove Road.

Police say they received a call from Betty Cox saying her son, Shon Robinson, 22, became enraged over not being allowed to borrow a car and he removed a .22 rifle from the closet and began firing several shots within the house through windows, walls, and the ceiling.

Cox and her other son, Mason Crum, attempted to take the firearm from Robinson's possession during which Cox took a glass jug and struck Robinson in his head.

Robinson then dropped the rifle and fled the scene on foot prior to the arrival of deputies.

Deputies called Robinson on his cell phone which he had with him, and then found Robinson nearby and determined that he had not been shot, although blood was on him from cuts to his head.

No visible injuries were found on Robinson, Crum or Cox other than the cuts on Robinson.

Robinson was taken into custody and charged with Improperly Discharging a Firearm in a Habitation and Having Weapons While Under Disability, both Felony offenses.
