According to, Sumter County sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of gun fire at the woman’s home and arrested 69-year-old Howard Sparber.

Deputies said that Sparber fired dozens of gunshots to gain entry to the house, but the woman turned out not to be home at the time.

The suspect was said to still be holding Sig Sauer 9mm semiautomatic handgun when the deputies arrived. He was taken into custody without incident.

Two magazines — one with 15-round capacity and another with 20-round capacity — were also recovered by the deputies.

The woman said that she had been harassed by Sparber with sexual advances since November 2015. She told deputies that she feared for her life after Sparber pointed a gun at her on one occasion.
