Weekend gun incidents ended peacefully

KINGMAN - Mohave County deputies had their hands full this weekend with two incidents involving people with guns.

An incidence of domestic violence could have turned deadly on a couple of levels Sunday when Mohave County Sheriff's deputies responded to a report of a man waving a gun around in front of a residence in the 2700 block of Devlin Avenue

Michael Jeremiah O'Keeffe, 48, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon per domestic violence, aggravated assault-impede breathing per domestic violence and two counts of disorderly conduct per domestic violence.

All of the charges are felonies.

According to Mohave County Sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter, when deputies arrived at the home a woman came outside holding a gun. She complied when deputies ordered her to put down the weapon.

A man also exited the home and the pair told deputies O'Keeffe was inside.

After the gun was confiscated, deputies learned O'Keeffe allegedly choked the woman, his girlfriend, and at some point in the altercation put the gun to the head of both the woman and man, a 39-year-old neighbor.

Carter said O'Keeffe, once he was placed in the back of the deputies' cruiser, began bashing his head into the Plexiglas that separates the front and back seats.

Deputies exhibited restraint in another weekend incident involving a gun when they responded to a home in the 3300 block of Malibu Road in Golden Valley.

Stephanie Grace Eisnach, 34, of Golden Valley was reportedly outside the home at about 5 p.m. waving a gun in the air when deputies arrived.

According to Carter, she ignored their repeated commands to drop the gun before she ran back inside the home.

Deputies surrounded the residence and two of them took positions by the front door.

A short time later Eisnach exited the home without the gun and was taken into custody. Nobody besides Eisnach was at the residence.

The gun was confiscated and she was arrested and charged with felony disorderly conduct with a weapon.

You folks write as if there was some one in the city of kingman that doesn't have a gun???? We all have hammers and knives too! The only difference is that it is not a felony charge to wave a hammer or knife in the air. Strange thinking if you ask me. Don't need background checks, but do need a gun owner ship stamp on our driver license's. That way we know who the felons are.

@Gun free - wouldn't it be nice to know if they were legal gun carrying citizens? Enhanced background checks will do nothing to stop those carrying guns illegally. Many arrested on weapons charges are carrying a gun illegally.

@concerned citizen
Guess you've never been to a scene where there is an agitated, drunk/high/mentally disturbed person?

What is it with "waving a gun?" Is that a required phrase that reporters have to use with every single gun incident that occurs in Kingman?

What few times I have observed people with weapons, I have never seen someone "wave" a gun in the air. I've seen them hold their gun by their side, point it in the air or at someone or something, and sometimes hold it across their chest.
But not "waving their gun in the air!"
