Wash. woman, 86, arrested after shotgun firedOctober 25, 2013 @ 6:25 pm
GIG HARBOR, Wash. (AP) - A Pierce County sheriff's spokesman says SWAT officers were called to deal with an 86-year-old Gig Harbor, Wash., woman after neighbors reported she was firing a shotgun at several nearby homes.
The News Tribune reports ( http://is.gd/DZpBdi) that shotgun pellets hit several homes Thursday night but no one was hurt.
Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer says the woman has mental health issues and has shot at neighbors in the past. The spokesman says the woman thinks people trespass on her property at night. In this case, he says she saw some lights in the fog and thought someone was on her property.
SWAT officers got the woman to surrender. She was taken into custody for investigation of aggravated assault.
