BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A woman claims she was nearly struck by a bullet while she was washing dishes and a teen was arrested for allegedly firing the shot.

According to the probable cause report submitted by the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office, the incident occurred on Monday, November 28 at roughly 5:30 a.m.

"EBRSO Deputies were dispatched to N. Buttonwood Drive in reference to approximately six shots fired in the area," states the report. "EBRSO Dispatch advised they received several calls on the incident and had a female on the line who stated a bullet came through her window nearly striking her as she washed dishes."

The victim told deputies that three girls and a male were responsible for the shooting.

"...the three females had spent the night on the couch and when the homeowner asked them to leave, one of the girls argued and was very disrespectful to the homeowner," states the report. "The homeowner stated a few minutes later he saw them on the sidewalk with a male."

Deputies searched the area and found a vehicle matching the description provided by witnesses. They conducted a traffic stop and claim to have found a .40 caliber handgun in the vehicle.
