Authorities are trying to confiscate 73 guns and nearly 60,000 rounds of ammunition from a Mississippi doctor charged with shooting at deputies in February.

Federal court records say Jones County deputies were called to Dr. Roger Meadows' house before midnight on Feb. 15 by a child who said her mother was trying to commit suicide.

An affidavit says Meadows pointed a shotgun at deputies and one of them shot him. He allegedly returned fire but nobody else was hurt.

Documents filed in U.S. District Court in Hattiesburg say authorities also found marijuana and material that can be used to make bombs and methamphetamine.

Meadows was charged with domestic violence, aggravated assault on a police officer and possession of marijuana. He was released on $200,000 bond.
