Temple Police Department officers were kept busy over the weekend with reports involving guns.

A previously convicted felon was arrested because he reportedly had a gun.

Anthony O’Neal Coulter, 41, reportedly was found Saturday in the 900 block of Duval Court when Temple Police officers went to a call about a man armed with a gun. A woman said Coulter pointed a gun at her, spokesman Cody Weems said Monday.

A gun was found on Coulter during the 2 a.m. call and, because of his previous felony convictions, he was arrested and taken to the Bell County Jail, Weems said.

The jail couldn’t find a record of Coulter’s recent presence at the jail, Bell County Chief Deputy Chuck Cox said Monday. Coulter was last in the jail in February on a parole violation, and he was released March 6.

About 3 a.m. on Saturday, officers were sent to the 6200 block of Jupiter Drive about an assault during which a woman reportedly was shot.

When officers arrived in the area, a woman was walking around. Officers saw a gunshot wound on her leg and a man bleeding from his head in a nearby yard, Weems said.

The woman said two people were fighting and the suspect, another woman, accidentally shot her in her leg.

The suspect in the shooting wasn’t found. The case is active.

The previous day at about 10:30 a.m., officers were sent to the 1000 block of Providence Park.

No charges were filed against the 34-year-old woman who allegedly went to the door of the caller’s residence and reportedly threatened her and her boyfriend with a gun, Cox said. She was released from the jail.
