Woman Accused of Shooting Man with Arrow, Carrying Fake Handgun
Fox 26 Houston KRIV ^ | 1/19/2009

Posted on 01/19/2009 8:06:47 PM PST by stickandrudder

HOUSTON -- Shortly after 3 p.m. Monday, a woman armed with a bow and arrow walked into a northwest Houston business and shot a man, according to police.

The female suspect, 30, was armed with the bow, multiple arrows, and what appeared to be a handgun, which later turned out to be a fake gun.

When she was confronted by workers inside Texas Components Corporation in the 6600 block of the Sam Houston Toll Way North, she shot a 55-year-old man in the chest with an arrow.

Two workers inside the office, both with concealed gun permits, pulled pistols of their own and shot at the woman. They then ran outside and began shooting back in, according to police.

When cops entered the building the suspect was hiding in an office still armed with the bow and arrow. When confronted by police, they say she made a move.

"The suspect threatened the officer, wheeled toward him so he discharged his weapon," said Sergeant John Chomiak.

The suspect's father works at the office but police are still investigating her motive for the attack.

Late Monday, both the victim and suspect were recovering at area hospitals in stable condition.

The incident was caught on surveillance video.

“Why did you shoot your husband with a bow and arrow?”

“Well, I didn’t want to wake the children.”

It appears that Texas is the wrong state in which to try to go on a bow-and-arrow rampage.

Lots of little companies in that area, the three offices and a loading dock kind of places. No surprise CCW isn’t an issue with them !

Now we will have to get licenses for bows and all arrows will need a serial number.

Someone needs to tell this lady that Dungeons and Dragons died out a long time ago. World of Warcraft is the way to go. Sheesh!!!!

Perhaps a +5 bow of Elvish Vengence should had been used (smirk).

Sort of hilarious. Run into an office to stir up some major trouble in Texas and TWO employees with a CCW draw! LOL! This woman must be a loon.

I guess those are the two that cut and run and were shooting back at the store since the cops found her inside and one of them shot her.

Incidents like this are being discussed heavily at the acronym sites, the Lone Wolf Scenario.

The Secret Service is very much concerned because it will be a new trend that they do not have a lot of profiling on.

A well trained archer with modern broadheads is an underestimated deadly weapon. The modern compound bow with release, range finder and pins is a deadly weapon out to 100 yards. My son shoots from the porch all summer and puts his entire quiver inside a small pie plate at 100 yards.

Let’s check my reading comprehension:

Two folks w CCW’s can’t shoot straight enough to take her down.

The cop shows up and also can’t shoot straight.

Note: Packing ain’t enough! You MUST PRACTICE!

Given a choice, one might prefer to be shot with a bullet rather than with a broadhead. The latter will cut more than a bullet, and it's hard to remove.

I like a crossbow. It can be cocked before hand and has a safety.

More likely she had equipped a Bow of the Jilted Lover. It had -20 to intellect and +40 to stamina. Double bonuses if the user has the PMS debuff.

Oh, ‘twasn’t me. I can’t shoot a bow for squat. A quarterstaff, now ... but I wouldn’t bring one of those to a gunfight.

In Texas, no less. These guys are going to be getting a heaping helping of grief from their associates.

There's gotta be a reason for this lapse in marksmanship. Maybe she's smokin' hot.

Whoops, missed the last part of the article which says that victim and suspect are both recovering at a local hospital (in separate rooms, one would hope). I guess the cop winged her, after all.

I didn’t want to make too fine a point of it, but with 3 shooters she “should” be dead.
