25-year-old Harrison Massey had a domestic altercation with his girlfriend, Liberty Clark, in their apartment at The Guthrie North Gulch on April 9th. Upon arrival, officers spoke with Clark, who advised that Massey was extremely intoxicated and was arguing with her, during which he grabbed a butcher knife and ran into the bathroom where she was. She said he laughed, put the knife down, punched her in the face, and chased her outside to the courtyard of the apartment complex. Witnesses heard her screaming and crying and went to help her. During this, Massey left the area. Clark then told them that he was suicidal, an alcoholic, and threatened to shoot her in the face. While officers were interviewing Clark, Massey called, so she answered and put the call on speaker for them to hear. During the call, he started crying hysterically and kept repeating, “I am sorry.” He then stated, “Just shoot me in the fucking face.”

Officers pleaded with Massey to come downstairs and unarmed and speak with them. Massey agreed but got into his vehicle and drove toward the entrance of the apartment complex, where he swerved twice and almost hit another vehicle. When Massey exited his vehicle, officers could smell the odor of alcohol emitting from his body and observed a liquor bottle in the back seat along with a gun under the driver’s seat.
