PALM COAST, Fla. -- A mother and son were arrested Tuesday after a family argument got violent.
The Flagler County Sheriff's Office responded to a Liedel Drive home after 11 a.m. Tuesday after residents reported shots fired.
Witnesses said 27-year-old twin brothers Franklin and Daniel Goggans had been arguing outside on the lawn. Franklin said his brother walked out of the house and approached him with a frying pan.
Franklin said as he sat in his truck, his brother climbed onto the hood and was tapping the windshield with the frying pan. Daniel got off the vehicle and retrieved a machete. He approached Franklin and threatened to "cut him up." Franklin, who had gotten out of the truck, went back to the vehicle to leave, but discovered the keys were not in the ignition.
He then retrieved his firearm from the vehicle and pointed it in Daniel's direction, firing two rounds into the ground, deputies said. Franklin ordered Daniel to stay away from him and Franklin left the scene. He later told deputies he thought he might have shot his brother in the foot. Deputies said Daniel appeared to have an injury to his foot, but he declined to tell deputies how it was injured.
Daniel Goggans was booked into the Flagler County Detention facility with no bond on acharge of domestic violence assault. While deputies were on the scene, the men's mother, Lajuana Goggans, 55, denied any shots were fired and interfered with the investigation. Deputies arrested her for filing a false report to law enforcment.
