Alaska State Troopers say that a woman shooting a gun inside a Saxman home gave up and allowed herself to be arrested, about eight hours after officers arrived.
Troopers were called to the home a little after midnight Monday, and at about 8:30 a.m., 23-year-old Jessica Dewitt surrendered. According to troopers, Dewitt had shot the gun numerous times from inside the residence. Other people who had been in the house were able to escape without injury.
Troopers report that Dewitt caused about $1,000 worth of damage to the home. Alcohol is a likely factor in the incident.
Dewitt faces multiple charges of weapons misconduct, domestic assault, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief.
