A Bay County woman who felt like her visitors had overstayed their welcome opened fire on them early Monday morning.
Alana Annette Savell, 32, of the 4200 block of Grady Street, told investigators that her guests had come over to hang out began drinking and getting too loud.
But Savell and her boyfriend said there is a solution for this problem; using a .22 caliber handgun to shoot at the guests’ feet, according to a news release from the Bay County Sheriff’s Office.
“The suspect’s boyfriend stated to investigators that he has told his girlfriend that once someone is told to leave their property three times, she is to go get the gun and shoot it at the ground,” the news release states. “If that does not work, she is to shoot people in the leg.”
The guests definitely got the message and left, but one of them was struck in the leg, deputies wrote. Savell’s boyfriend was also hit with a bullet in the leg.
Savell is charged with aggravated battery with a firearm. She was taken to the Bay County Jail.
