Deputies from the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to the scene at 2:30 p.m., after receiving reports of an assault with a deadly weapon, Riverside Sheriff’s Sergeant Nathan Kaas has since said of the incident and arrest.

The 911 caller reported that a woman at the location fired a handgun at him during a child custody exchange, according to the Sergeant.

When patrol deputies and Special Enforcement Bureau (SWAT) members arrived at the location they blocked off the area of Breezy Way and Honey Hollow and detained all the occupants of the home, at which time they located three juveniles.

At the conclusion of their subsequent investigation officials arrested a woman.

She was later booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, child endangerment, and making criminal threats.

Online jail records indicate she was released within hours of being booked after posting $50,000 bail or bond.
