LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man is accused of firing a gun at a house while a woman and her 10-year-old daughter were inside.

Police said Gary Keith Gowen, 58, sat in a car outside a home on Edsel Lane around 7:00 Monday night, honking the horn. When the woman wouldn't come outside, Gowen fired a handgun at the house, according to an arrest report. The victim told officers she then called the suspect and asked if he'd just shot at her home. He told her he had and that the next bullet was going into her husband's head, police said.

Officers said when they arrived at the home, Gowen was backing out of the driveway.

The arrest report says police searched Gowen and found a handgun concealed in his back pocket and a baggy containing cocaine.

Gowen is charged with two counts of wanton endangerment, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a controlled substance.
