Fight: Police say a shot was fired Saturday during a disturbance in the 1400 block of Pennsylvania Avenue. Jamie S. Bing, 36, 1333 Euclid Ave., was charged with felonious assault after police were told she’d taken a shot at another woman, then tossed the gun beside a house. The other woman said they’d been arguing inside the house and “it turned into a fight” that continued outside, culminating with the gun shot. A handgun was located and the officer who found it said it was cocked, adding he found four live rounds when he removed the cylinder. Bystanders told police they’d heard one or two shots. Bing was taken to the hospital for treatment of a hand injury she sustained during the fight, while the other woman lost a fingernail but declined treatment.

Pointing fingers: A caller reported an intoxicated man causing a disturbance on Woodlawn Road, Thursday. Police said they were en route to the call when a man on foot flagged them down, telling them he and his girlfriend had argued and she’d called police. Officers said they noticed a strong odor of alcohol on his breath. His girlfriend told them he was highly intoxicated, slamming doors and knocking pictures off the wall. She said he bumped into a juvenile and caused the child to lose his balance, then screamed at the child and told officers she wanted to pursue charges. When questioned about slamming doors, the man said, “they do it, too” and said he’d been trying to leave, but his girlfriend won’t let him, saying she “guilt trips him into staying.” Police charged Donald L. Eilander, 35, 516 Woodland Ave., Steubenville, with domestic violence.
