A Cheyenne woman was arrested Sunday afternoon after firing a handgun at her boyfriend.
According to a release from the Cheyenne Police Department, officers were dispatched to a Cheyenne home around 4 p.m. Sunday in reference to a report of shots fired.
Due to the nature of the call and all parties involved retreating back into the residence and refusing to come out, the SWAT team and crisis negotiation unit were called in.
Both parties eventually came out of the residence without incident.
It was found that after a verbal altercation, Brenda Sutton allegedly fired a handgun at her boyfriend, although the round didn’t strike him.
She was taken into custody on scene and transported to the Cheyenne Public Safety Center, where she was interviewed. She was found to have a warrant in Laramie County for failure to appear in court on an original charge of possession of methamphetamine.
Sutton was booked on the warrant on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
