HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) A Myrtle Beach woman was booked into jail on several charges including unlawful neglect of a child after officers say she pointed a gun at a man as he held a child Sunday morning.

In a police report obtained by WMBF News, Horry County Police responded to a home along Sunnehanna Drive in the Myrtle Beach area in reference to reported domestic incident just after 4 a.m. When they arrived, they found a male victim suffering from several cuts on his face who said Heather Brennan, 21, had a gun and threatened to kill him with it.

The victim told police Brennan was locked inside a bathroom with several guns.

When officers attempted to speak with Brennan, she told police she and the victim had been out for New Years Eve and had just returned to the home. She said she had been drinking but never fought with the victim or threatened to kill him.

Officers then went into the bathroom and found several guns on the floor, including a shotgun, the report said. Brennan then allegedly told police the victim was the one who put the guns in the bathroom.

The victim told police Brennan had been "uncontrollable" upon returning from a party and struck him in the face several times as they argued. He said Brennan grabbed a 12-guage shotgun off a gun rack and attempted to load it. According to the victim, he was able to take the gun away from Brennan, however, she was able to gain possession of it once more.

During the argument, the victim said Brennan was able to load the shotgun while he picked up a child. Brennan then allegedly pointed the gun at the victim and the child and threatened to kill the victim.

Brennan was placed under arrest and charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature, breach of peace and unlawful neglect of a child. She was released from the J. Reuben Long Detention Center Sunday evening.
