A 37-year-old Hoquiam woman was arrested on Reckless Endangerment charges after Hoquiam police were called to a report of gunshots in the 900 block of 1st Street just before 8 PM Sunday night. Arriving police were told by other members of the household that a woman was suicidal and brandishing a handgun. At one point, they reported, the firearm discharged toward a household member, police located where the bullet struck somewhere inside the home. Police reported only minor injuries from debris caused by the discharge.
Based on the willful and wanton disregard for the safety of those family members inside the house, the female suspect was arrested and booked into the Hoquiam Jail. The suspect will be evaluated by a Designated Crisis Responder and she has a court appearance on May 14th in Hoquiam Municipal Court.
Hoquiam police confirmed Tuesday morning that a weapon was recovered from the scene.
