Woman allegedly fired handgun into Downers Grove man's vehicle

DOWNERS GROVE – An Indianapolis woman was arrested Monday after allegedly firing two shots from her handgun at her former boyfriend's unoccupied vehicle in Downers Grove.

Jenniece A. Jones, 20, of 532 S. Central Court, Indianapolis, Ind., was charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm at 3:25 p.m. Monday at 63rd Street and Fairview Avenue.

The alleged victim told police that Jones, a former girlfriend, had come to his residence in the 6300 block of Wells Street to collect personal property. He said she wanted to get back together, and when he rebuffed her offer, she went outside and scratched the side of his Jeep, according to police.

She then later went to her vehicle and pulled a hand gun from her purse, stood in front of the man's Jeep and fired one round into the front passenger tire and fired a second shot into the unoccupied vehicle, through the windshield, police said.

No one was injured.

Jones left the scene after firing the second shot and was later stopped by police and taken into custody, according to police.

She was being held on 10 percent of $250,000 bail Tuesday.
