Woman arrested after apartment shooting

A woman has been arrested on a number of charges after she fired a weapon inside a Sturgeon Bay apartment Saturday evening. Personnel from the Sturgeon Bay Police Department, Door County Sheriff’s Department, and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources reported to the apartment just before 5:30 p.m.  An apartment renter notified the authorities that a gun was fired outside her door. Upon arrival, the woman in question was standing on the balcony admitting her guilt while also being intoxicated. Law enforcement was able to find a loaded pistol, an empty casing, a hole in the wall caused by firing the bullet. Sturgeon Bay Assistant Police Chief Dan Brinkman says the woman was there to meet a man she met on the internet.

She was arrested on three counts of endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon and disorderly conduct. Her behavior at the hospital brought on additional charges. No injuries were reported and Brinkman says the incident is still under investigation.
