LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man charged with attempted murder after threatening a man in West Buechel appeared in court on Monday.

Police said Ronald Montgomery, 52, parked in front of the victim's home on Hikes Avenue on Saturday. When approached, authorities said Montgomery removed a weapon from his trunk, pointed it at the victim and stated "This is your last day on earth, [expletive]."

When the victim grabbed the weapon, Montgomery said "Don't kill me, I'm your cousin," according to the arrest report. Montgomery attempted to drive away, as the victim fired shots to stop him. He was later arrested.

A judge released Montgomery from jail on the Home Incarceration Program. He has been ordered to have no contact with the victim or West Buechel.

Montgomery is due back in court on December 14.
