A Henderson woman was arrested after police say she was high on meth and fired a bullet through the wall of her neighbor’s apartment.

According to Henderson Police, officers responded to the 17-hundred block of Turnagain Drive around 11:35 p.m. Thursday where 63 year old Angela Shelton stated she accidentally shot a shotgun through the wall into a neighbor’s apartment because she was upset about being evicted. Shelton reportedly told police she thought the gun was unloaded and she pulled the trigger three times before it fired, causing the bullet to penetrate the wall and hit a fish tank valued at 77-hundred dollars. Police say there was a 7 year old girl in the room with the fish tank when the shot was fired, but she was uninjured. Authorities indicate Shelton was high on methamphetamine and other narcotics when the shot was fired.

Shelton was arrested and lodged in the Henderson County Detention Center for first degree wanton endangerment, first degree possession of a controlled substance – meth, first degree criminal mischief, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
