Janesville woman arrested following pair of shots fired reports

JANESVILLE, Wis. — Janesville police arrested a woman early Friday following two reports of shots fired.

Officers were called to the 400 block of North Pearl Street just before 2:42 a.m. for a shots fired call shell casings were found in the area. While on the scene, officers heard a gunshot in the 2300 block of Harvard Drive.

Police said a 31-year-old woman and her friend were found outside an apartment in the 2300 block of Harvard Drive. She was allegedly intoxicated and officers learned she had been at the scene of both shots fired reports. She was arrested for a probation violation.

Officers found a shell casing on the ground in the area, and police said they found two guns inside the woman’s apartment. The guns allegedly matched the caliber of the shells found at both scenes and a scan of the serial numbers allegedly revealed that both guns were reported stolen from Madison.

In total, four rounds were fired in the two incidents. Police said no injuries were reported in either incident.

The woman faces two counts of felon in possession of a firearm, two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, one count of receiving stolen property and one count of going armed while under the influence of an intoxicant.
