MT. AIRY (FOX19) - A judge issued a domestic violence temporary protection order Saturday against a father who is charged with kidnapping his son after a shooting that happened in Mt. Airy Thursday night, Cincinnati police announced Friday.

Cincinnati Police District 5 Violent Crimes Squad and Fugitive Apprehension Squad arrested Jaeron Pope, 25, of Forest Park on two charges of felonious assault and one count of kidnapping, police said in a tweet.

The charges stem from an incident in the 2200 block of Intern Court.

Police say Pope tried to remove his son without the consent of the boy’s mother.

During an argument, he fired a gun in her direction in attempt to cause her serious physical harm and shot her current boyfriend, court records show.

After the shooting, Pope fled the scene with his son in the back seat of a vehicle, an affidavit states.

He is scheduled to make second court appearance in the case March 4, court records state.
