An Elgin man allegedly kicked in the door of a woman’s house after her current boyfriend threatened that there “was going to be a problem” if the subject kept calling the woman. The current boyfriend told deputies that while at his girlfriend’s home, the subject kept calling her, even after she told him to stop calling.

About 30 minutes after the boyfriend told the man to stop calling, the Elgin man reportedly started knocking on the door. When the couple didn’t answer the door, he allegedly kicked it in and approached the boyfriend with a handgun and pulled the trigger.

The gun misfired twice, before the victim grabbed a baseball bat to defend himself, but the subject fled the home.
