A Philipsburg man is facing multiple charges after a domestic incident.

State troopers were dispatched at about midnight Friday to a home at 110 N. 13th St. where a man said he had been in an argument at Randy Gene Litz’s residence at 121 Martin St.

Litz’s relation to the man was redacted in the affidavit.

Litz intervened in the argument and the man’s siblings left the home, but he went into a bedroom, according to the affidavit. The man told troopers he heard a click from the kitchen and that Litz entered the bedroom and put the barrel of a rifle next to his head. Litz then allegedly walked to the kitchen and placed the rifle on a table.

State troopers also interviewed a woman, who said that Litz had called her, screamed at her and threatened to “beat the s—t” out of other people.

Litz was located at his residence at about 1:15 a.m. Friday. State troopers found four rifles in Litz’s home, and the safety on each gun was off. Litz criminal history indicated a guilty plea to felony burglary, according to the affidavit.

Litz was charged with felony possession of a firearm, misdemeanor terroristic threats and misdemeanor simple assault. He was unable to post $10,000 bail set by District Judge Allen Sinclair and was placed in the Centre County Correctional Facility.
