The incident happened at a residence on Moffitt Drive at Rock Island.
Matheny said Knight confronted Jason Crouch at the residence and a fight ensued. Crouch suffered minor injuries in the altercation. Matheny said during the scuffle, Knight allegedly held a gun to Crouch's head. As Crouch pushed the gun away, it went off.

Senator Locks Office Due to Protesters
AP Wednesday February 22, 2017

A Tennessee senator has locked up her state Capitol office amid a renewed feud with protesters.
About a dozen people were involved in Tuesday's protest at Sen. Mae Beavers' office. Some read civil rights writings and knocked on her door inside the office.
Last week, Beavers and Rep. Mark Pody abruptly ended their own news conference when protesters interrupted to oppose the lawmakers' bathroom bill and legislation defining marriage as only between a man and a woman.
Afterward, Beavers suggested the protesters should be imprisoned, spurring Tuesday's sit-in.
Beavers told Tuesday's protesters she'd have them removed if they kept knocking. She said she was busy meeting with constituents.
Beavers and staffers then left and locked up as protesters asked questions. Police blocked protesters as Beavers took the elevator.
