A Fourth of July celebration Sunday night ended with a woman accused of shooting several bullets into a camper parked at a residence in Miller County where about 20 adults and children were gathered. Luckily no one was injured.
Someone was in the camper when it happened about 11:12 p.m. Sunday at a residence in the 5900 block of Miller County Road 17, authorities say.
Reports indicate that six to eight shots were fired and that at least one round struck the camper.The motive is related to an ongoing domestic issue.
Callers who reported the gunfire to the Sheriff’s Office identified 41-year-old Amanda Simmons, of Miller County, as the suspect and indicated that she had left there driving a sedan, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
While some deputies were responding to the scene of the shooting, other personnel went to the area of Simmons’ residence.
She was arrested when she was stopped while driving near U.S. Highway 71 at Edgewood Drive.
