MATTAWA, Wash. (AP) — A 33-year-old Mattawa man is in jail after violating a protection order, pointing a "zip gun" at his sister and threatening to shoot her.

The Grant County Sheriff's Office responded to a call on Monday afternoon about a man who violated a protection order. The report said Malcom Engle Sr. was at his sister's home and pointed a "zip gun" at her. The gun was an improvised, homemade firearm.
