A Mt. Eden man attempted to incite his own death by threatening to kill police Sunday evening.
Gary Joe Wilson, 35, reportedly pointed an AK-47 assault rifle at Spencer County Deputy Kyle Bennett after police were called to his home on a domestic violence call.
A child at the residence called 911 to report that the father was trying to choke the mother.
While en route to the scene, officers were told that Wilson had left the residence and was hiding in the woods with the loaded semi-automatic firearm.
