On Sunday December 4, 2022 at 8:18 pm I Deputy Nathan Salyer and Deputy Callaway were dispatched to [100 BLOCK] Shank Street in reference to shots fired.
While responding dispatch advised the caller Stephenie Gant essentially stated her child’s father [WITNESS #1] shot at her with her child inside of the car. Dispatch advised Gant told them [WITNESS #1] brother came at her with a knife and she would be waiting for law enforcement down the road from the residence.
Upon arrival, Deputy Callaway and Sgt. Norton were already on scene prior to my arrival. Sgt. Norton had made contact with the caller Stephenie Gant. Deputy Callaway and I made contact with [WITNESS #1] who was standing in the front yard of the residence located at [100 BLOCK] Shank Street.
I asked [WITNESS #1] what happened. [WITNESS #1] essentially stated he was at his residence when his child’s mother Stephenie Gant came over to the residence upset, “trippin” because she accused him of having another female (unknown) over at his residence while he had custody of their child.
While speaking with [WITNESS #1] a older male subject came walking up to the scene. I explained to the male subject who was later identified to stay back due to this being a potential crime scene.
During the course of investigation Stephenie was taken into custody without incident and charged for Reckless conduct and possession of firearm by convicted felon or first offender.
