MAGNOLIA, Del. (AP) — A Delaware woman has been accused of firing multiple gunshots inside her home after fighting with a male acquaintance, Delaware State Police said.

Police said in a news release that troopers were sent to a residence in Magnolia early Thursday.

When troopers arrived, they learned that Tamia Richardson, 25, had been in a fight with a 21-year-old man inside the home. During the fight, Richardson fired multiple shots, the news release said. A 44-year-old man and two children, ages 1 and 4, were also inside the home when the shots were fired, police said.

Troopers ordered Richardson to come out of the home. She was taken into custody without incident. Police said the 21-year-old man had left the home before they arrived. No injuries were reported.

Richardson is charged with three counts of felony first-degree reckless endangerment and felony possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony. She was jailed on a $12,500 secured bond. It could not be immediately determined if she had an attorney.
