Cheyenne Police: Shots Fired Incident Grew Out Of Rental Dispute
Cheyenne Police say an incident on Thursday in which shots were fired and a woman was arrested apparently grew out of a dispute between a property owner and a tenant.
That's according to a news release from the CPD.
Police spokeswoman Alex Farkas says police were called to the 1400 block of Rollins Avenue around 11 am Thursday on a report of shots being fired. Farkas says the preliminary investigation showed that property owner Peggy Zdenek, a 60-year-old Cheyenne resident, had tried to conduct an inspection on a tenant's room but had been refused entry.
Zdenek and the tenant had supposedly been involved in an ongoing verbal dispute for some time. Zdenek allegedly pulled out a gun and fired several shots at the door of the room while the tenant was inside.
There were two other tenants in the home when the shots were fired, but no injuries were reported.
According to the release, when police arrived they found Zdenek in the front yard of the residence. She was arrested at 11:07 am without incident and booked into the Laramie County jail on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and reckless endangering.
