KINGMAN - The Golden Valley man who allegedly shot his roommate and threatened to force deputies to shoot him on April 30 was indicted on two felony counts related to domestic violence.

Donald James Klebart, 59, allegedly walked into his roommate's room at the home they shared in the 7300 block of Unkar Drive and shot her in the hand.

The woman reportedly took the weapon from Klebart and went to a neighbor's home.

Mohave County Sheriff's deputies responded and learned that Klebart had additional guns in the home.

They reportedly observed him sitting near a window with a rifle in his hands. A dispatcher advised that Klebart called and said he would "cooperate" with their demands to disarm and exit the home, but that he would put a gun in his waistband "so that deputies would be forced to shoot him," said sheriff's office spokeswoman Trish Carter following the incident.

Members of the sheriff's Tactical Operation Unit entered the home and arrested Klebart without a shot fired.

The roommate was treated and later released from Kingman Regional Medical Center.

Klebart was arrested on a single felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon by domestic violence, but the Mohave County Grand Jury returned an indictment on charges of aggravated assault by domestic violence and disorderly conduct involving a weapon by domestic violence.

He remains in the Mohave County jail, where he will be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. Friday.

Judge Derek Carlisle was assigned the case.
