CLINTON — A convicted felon fired shots at a male, resulting in the filing of three felony charges, according to court records.
Amy M. Smith, 39, 2419 S. 14th St., is charged with intimidation with a dangerous weapon, injure/provoke fear, a class C felony, dominion/control of a firearm/offensive weapon by a felon, a class D felony, and going armed with intent, a class D felony. Attorney Harold DeLange is appointed to represent Smith. A preliminary hearing is set for 8:30 a.m. June 22.
According to the affidavit, at approximately 12:09 p.m. May 1, a male called 911 to report shots fired in the alley behind his residence at 2523 Garfield St. Officers were told a red Dodge Durango came through the alley. The driver and front seat female passenger argued with and threatened a male over money and food stamps. Two males could see a handgun on the female's lap.
The affidavit states the vehicle started to pull away and according to one individual, it stopped a short distance away. The driver started to get out of the vehicle. Two males grabbed rocks and threw them at the vehicle. The vehicle went around a sharp right turn in the alley with three males following it on foot. The front seat passenger stuck a handgun out the front passenger door window and fired the gun. The male said the female tried to aim the gun back toward them but believed the round went into the air. Officers recovered a spent .380 shell casing in the alley where the handgun was fired out of the passenger side window of the vehicle.
The affidavit states on May 18 a male stated Smith was the front-seat passenger. The male said Smith argued with a tall, skinny man. Smith said the man owed her $100. The male said the tall, skinny man threw a rock at the vehicle. Smith tried turning around in the front passenger seat, took aim at the man and fired a single shot at him.
The affidavit states on June 12, Smith was located during a search of her residence. Officers recovered a loaded handgun in her purse. Officers recovered two additional firearms in the residence. A criminal history showed Smith is a convicted felon.
