Suspect: "There is going to be a show down"

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Shots were fired after deputies responded to a home in the 6200 block of N. Van Ark Road for reports of a domestic violence dispute between a mother and son.

It started after a mother called 911 around 9 a.m. to report that her son had punched a hole in the wall and poured flammable liquid into her car and threatened to light it on fire.

The mother also said that he was armed with a machete, handgun, and bullet proof vest. The son also said "there would be a show down" once officers arrived on scene. 

According to deputies, the mother was able to escape the house through a bedroom window. 

As 5-year-veteran Deputy Chance Kennedy arrived on the scene, he saw 21-year-old Cody Salzman standing behind a pickup truck parked in the driveway.

Kennedy said he was using the car as cover and pointing what appeared to be a rifle at him.

Kennedy fired two shots causing him to surrender. Salzman was not hit or injured.

Detectives responded and found a wooden rifle stock without a barrel. They determined this is what Salzman pointed at Kennedy.

Salzman was arrested for aggravated assault on a peace officer and booking into Pima County Adult Detention Center.
