As the dispute continued, the woman said she ran out to the back yard and shot a bullet in the air to alert neighbors in hopes that someone would call police. At that point, she claimed to hear a shot from the front yard.

She believes the family member she was tussling with grabbed a gun from one of the vehicles out front. The suspect left the scene prior to officers arriving. The victim did not want to press charges.
