MANSFIELD - Debbie S. Bowen, 58, of 52 E. Elmira St., was charged with reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct after she allegedly fired three shots at her estranged husband, Larry, during an altercation at the residence Tuesday evening.
According to documents filed at District Judge James Carlson's office, borough police were dispatched to the residence about 8 p.m. for a report of shots fired and a woman screaming. When they arrived, they said they found Debbie Bowen in the residence with her daughter and two young children.
After she was brought out of the house and placed into the squad car, state police arrived and went into the house where they allegedly found a Taurus .22 caliber handgun in a box in the bedroom closet. A holster for the weapon was found on the bed and three bullet shells were found outside the residence.
According to police, Larry Bowen went to the residence to pick up a box with some belongings in it and Debbie Bowen came out of the house and fired the weapon at him twice. Both rounds struck the box and a third round, which she shot after going back inside and coming back out, was fired toward the pavement of the driveway.
She was released on $15,000 bail and her preliminary hearing set for March 6.
