Police said Harper's 27-year-old granddaughter was on the roof of the house screaming for help. The boyfriend, 28, said he believed Harper had gone inside the house to reload her weapon. After police forced their way in through the front door they found Harper in a hallway, disarmed her and placed her under arrest.

The boyfriend told police Harper fired at him several times as he was running from the house. He said he heard and felt one bullet go past him.

After being placed in a police car, officers said Harper stated, "I just lost it. I didn't mean to hurt anyone."

In addition to two counts of attempted murder, Harper is charged with possession of controlled substances and tampering with physical evidence. Police found pills on Harper which she said were percocet and xanax. They also said she gathered up shell casings from the gun and disposed of them.
