Guedry did not specify how many shots were reportedly fired.

Due to the incident likely being related to domestic violence, officers arrested a 32-year-old woman at the scene on a charge of deadly conduct-discharge firearm.

Guedry did not release the name of the woman but Jefferson County Correctional Facility inmate roster lists Janei Jasmine Young, 32, as being arrested for deadly conduct discharge firearm by PAPD on Wednesday.

Bond is set at $5,000 and Young also has two Port Arthur tickets, in which she can pay a fine or pay the tickets, a jail employee said.
