MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - A Meridian teenager has been charged as adult after police say she attempted to shoot her mother.

15-year old Kaley Shannon was charged with felony aggravated assault-domestic violence.

Investigators say Shannon shot at her mother during an argument Oct. 18. Fortunately, the woman was not hit by the bullet.

After the argument, police say Shannon, who they say has a very short temper, went outside and fired multiple shots into the air.

A judge reduced Shannon’s bond from $20,000 to $5,000. Investigators say Shannon has a lengthy juvenile record.
