A Georgia woman has been charged with attempted murder after shooting her neighbor during a dispute over barking dogs, authorities said Tuesday according to foxnews.com.
Fonda Spratt, 56, is accused of marching into her neighbor’s home in Flowery Branch’s 5200 block of Chattahoochee Street to confront her about barking dogs, then pulling out a firearm and shooting at her multiple times, according to the Flowery Branch Police Department.
Officers responded to a shooting report shortly after 11:30 a.m. and discovered an adult female standing in the street with multiple gunshot wounds, according to police.
The victim had been struck twice, and officers used a tourniquet before rushing her to a hospital. The victim was being treated at the hospital and was last known to be in stable condition.
“This is incredibly unfortunate and could have ended in catastrophic results. There could have been more innocent individuals injured or killed,” Chief Christopher Hulsey said.
Spratt was charged with criminal attempted murder, two counts of aggravated assault, home invasion, reckless conduct, and possession of a firearm during the commission of certain crimes.
According to online jail records, she was being held at the Hall County Jail on a bond of $1,300.
