Gunshots in dispute land woman in jail
Shots fired from a .357 magnum revolver during a domestic dispute Nov. 14 resulted in a Peabody woman being booked into jail.
Peabody Police Chief Bruce Burke was dispatched to the 200 block of Elm St. at 11:44 a.m. for what he described as “an argument between spouses” in which shots were fired.
“Two rounds from a handgun were fired inside a residential home,” Burke said.
Sheriff’s deputy Mike Ottensmeier radioed that he was responding as backup.
En route to the scene, a dispatcher indicated the reporting party said the gun involved was a .357 magnum, and that the gun was no longer in the woman’s possession.
Burke arrived and entered the house, reporting he had the gun in his possession at 11:52 a.m.
Laurie Jones, 55, was taken to jail and booked on suspicion of aggravated assault and domestic battery.
