A woman was arrested after shooting into a neighbor's home from her porch in Flint late last week, according to a police report released today.

Police were called to a home on West Newall Street near King Avenue around 6 p.m. Friday about a woman firing a rifle, according to the police report.

The 35-year-old woman told police she was firing into the air to scare an ex-boyfriend who was threatening her.

Police took the .22-caliber rifle from the home and found that a .22-caliber round was fired into a front living room window of another home on Newall Street.

The bullet missed a man who was sitting in the living room by about three feet, according to the police report.

The woman was arrested for shooting into an occupied dwelling and lodged at Genesee County Hail, according to the report.
