CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- A local man is facing attempted murder charges after deputies say he pointed a gun at them.

Clay County Sheriff deputies went to a home with investigators for the Department of Children and Families to pick up a child.

Investigators say Thomas Adams opened the door with his hands behind his back, then pulled a loaded 9 mm handgun and pointed it at deputies.

One of the deputies tackled Adams and took the gun away. Police took him to Orange Park Medical Center for an evaluation before taking him to jail.

"We're very fortunate today that we don't have an officer seriously injured or killed after that incident," said Sheriff Rick Beseler.
