Police were first called to the home in the 4500 block of University Avenue on Monday evening resulting in Parker being taken to the state hospital. He was released later that same night.

Parker's mother told police that when her son came home he began throwing things, hitting her in the head with an object.

Parker then used a .22 caliber pistol to shoot at his mother while she was in the bathroom but missed.

Parker now faces charges for assault -- family violence.
