BAKER - Police arrested a Baker woman after they said she shot another woman in the leg during a heated argument at a birthday party.

Chief Mike Knaps said officers arrested Brittany Washington after she shot Tricia Hayes Monday night, shattering a bone in Hayes' leg.

Investigators said Washington went over to Hayes house to talk to a man there and wish him happy birthday. Hayes told her she was not welcome, and needed to leave.

Police said Washington left with three children while Hayes followed her and shouted threats. They said Washington got to her vehicle, took out a gun and threatened Hayes with it. During the confrontation the gun went off and hit Hayes in the leg.

Knaps said family members took the gun away from Washington and kept it until Baker Police arrived and arrested her. He said Washington faces charges of aggravated second degree battery.
