JPD officer arrests woman alleged to have shot at man in July
(From the Joplin Police Department)
This morning at 1:21am one of our officers obtained information that a female was at an apartment at 822 Connecticut that had a felony first degree assault warrant with no bond, out of Jasper County.
When officers made contact at the door with a female, the female with the warrant also came to the door and gave a false name. She then ran to the back of the apartment with the officer chasing her, giving her commands.
She tried to slam the bedroom door on the officer, and he was able to force it open.
The female continued to resist but was ultimately taken into custody for her warrant. Her warrant stemmed from a call our department responded to on July 31st, where the female shot at a male during an argument.
