She’s accused of pointing the gun and firing a shot at her father, which sent him running out of the house, the newspaper reported. Her mother, Le’Trice Palmer, was holding her newborn granddaughter when she heard two gunshots and ran out of the house, the report said.
Tambria Palmer allegedly chased her mother across the front yard toward a neighbor’s house, firing shots while they ran, the report said. Le’Trice Palmer fell to the ground several time to try to dodge the bullets.
Deputies were called about the gunfire, and when they arrived around 3:40 p.m., Tambria Palmer allegedly threw the gun into the bushes after having fired every round in the magazine, the sheriff’s office told the Telegraph. Palmer was then arrested.
Palmer’s three other children, ages 2 to 10, were found in a back bedroom in the home, the newspaper reported.
Palmer, who is unemployed and lives with her parents, faces six counts of aggravated assault, four counts of cruelty to children and one count of reckless conduct, the Telegraph reported. Her children remain in the care of her parents.
