An intoxicated Spartanburg woman was accused of shooting at two men she did not know, police said.
Spartanburg public safety officers were called to a home on Beaumont Avenue about 11:50 p.m. Monday after two men told them a woman had fired shots at them. Police said they found the two men hiding in the grass near the intersection of Beaumont and Garner Road.
The men told police they were walking to the nearby Li'l Cricket store when they saw a friend standing outside of his home.
They stopped to talk to their friend, and while chatting they could see an unknown woman through the bedroom window grab a gun from under a pillow and come outside, police said.
"Some lady comes out the house asking if we were starting trouble in her yard," Jonathan Johnson, one of the men, told FOX Carolina. "She came out the house shooting at us."
The woman started yelling and fired a shot towards the men that flew between them, according to the police report.
The report said the men ran to hide and the woman ran after them but couldn't find them, then she fired another shot into the air.
"We laid in the bushes. My phone was dead, but laid in bushes until police came," said Johnson.
Police said they arrested the woman, 49-year-old Frankie King and tested her before booking, which showed she had a blood-alcohol level of 0.12.
King was charged with two counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and use of a firearm while under the influence. She was denied bond by a judge.
