Police went to Ray McDonald's house back in May ... when a woman pulled a gun on a man in the San Francisco 49er's house.
San Jose cops just released an incident report describing the altercation between an "engaged couple" on the evening of May 25th. According to the doc ...while the couple was arguing the woman grabbed a firearm and held it at her side. The man then told her he was going to call 911 -- and she ran out of the house.
Cops say the woman did not make any threats or point the gun at her fiance. The report doesn't mention McDonald's name.
McDonald was arrested in August by San Jose police for a felony domestic violence incident involving his pregnant fiancee. The 49ers have said McDonald will remain active while he goes through the legal process.
Calls to the 49ers have not been returned. It's unclear if the team was aware of the May incident.

It Belongs to Security Chief
9/5/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The AK-47 that got Young Jeezy and 5 others thrown in jail doesn't even belong to the rapper -- it's legally registered to the head of security for his tour ... who was in a hospital bed the night police seized the weapon, TMZ has learned.
TMZ broke the story ... the assault rifle turned up when cops searched Jeezy's bus on Aug. 24 in Orange County in connection with a fatal concert shooting 2 nights earlier. Police say they arrested all 6 people on the bus because no one claimed ownership.
Sources tell us the gun's owner -- the tour's security chief -- had a good reason for not being there ... the guy got shot in the arm at 1Oak nightclub the night before. We're told he was caught in the crossfire when Suge Knight got shot 6 times ... and TMZ got video of him leaving the club with his wounded arm all wrapped up.
We're told there are serious questions about Jeezy's arrest. According to law enforcement sources the AK-47 wasn't found anywhere near him. It was in a closed case in an area associated with someone other than Jeezy. Meanwhile, he was in an entirely separate cabin of the bus where NO weapons were found.
Official reports related to the arrest indicate the arresting officers were repeatedly told the registered owner of the weapon was the tour security chief, and that he was hospitalized.
Jeezy's been busy on tour since posting bail in the puzzling arrest. Thursday night he was on the 'Tonight Show' ... and even shouted out Joan Rivers.

Omaha police officers were running and gunning to make compelling TV when they sprayed bullets at an armed robbery suspect, killing him and a 'Cops' crewman ... so claims the dead suspect's family.
TMZ spoke with one of Cortez Washington's relatives ... who believes the officers used excessive force Tuesday night -- and were "hyped up" to put on a good show when they responded to the Wendy's.
As we reported ... 'Cops' sound supervisor Bryce Dion died after getting hit by friendly fire from Omaha PD during the shootout with Washington -- who was holding a Wendy's employee at gun point.
Washington's firearm turned out to be a pellet gun -- modeled after a real semi-automatic pistol -- and his family thinks officers should have recognized it wasn't a lethal weapon before they unloaded more than 20 rounds. One family member told us, "With everything going on in Ferguson, you think they would use other options."
The relative also said they don't buy Omaha PD's claim Cortez started the shootout by firing two rounds.
Omaha cops say they were not grandstanding for cameras ... maintaining they responded to the robbery with proper protocol ... and engaged Cortez because he pointed and fired his weapon at them.

Investigators say Dion was caught in the crossfire ... hit by a bullet or bullets from a police weapon. They say Dion was wearing an armored vest, but the bullet went through the arm hole of the vest.
Omaha PD was also adamant -- the officers were NOT showing off for the camera when they opened fire on the suspect -- who also died from gunshot wounds.

Not Talking to Cops
8/26/2014 10:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Suge Knight is NOT talking to cops about the 6 bullets that penetrated his body ... refusing to drop a dime on anyone.
Sources close to Suge tell us ... the wounded mogul is fully conscious, although on several occasions police were turned away on false info -- that he was supposedly sedated.

Suge Was Not the Target
In Pre-VMA Shooting
8/26/2014 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Katt Williams says he was with Suge Knight when he was shot at the pre-VMA party ... and the comedian maintains Suge was trying to protect someone else when the bullets started flying.
Our photog spotted Katt out in Malibu Monday, where he broke down the shooting of his friend Suge, like this:
-- Suge was not the intended victim and he was merely trying to save someone else ... possibly Chris Brown?
-- Suge's shooting was NOT gang-related because ... has there ever been a gang-related shooting where the other side didn't shoot back?
As for who pulled the trigger, Katt uncorked a rant about "nobody" shooting Suge ... theorizing the shooter might never be caught just like MLK Jr. and Malcolm X's assassins -- which makes zero sense since their killers were tried and convicted.
That aside, watch the clip ... Katt makes more solid points than not.
