— A new charge was filed Thursday against a woman accused of firing a shot into a Raleigh firehouse two weeks ago during an argument.

Tristian Dangela Todd, 20, of 811 Beverly Drive in Raleigh, was charged with discharging a weapon into occupied property. She previously was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, going armed to the terror of people, discharge of a firearm in a city and intoxication and disruption.

Raleigh police said the March 3 shooting stemmed from a week-long dispute between Todd and another woman and that at least one of the two fired multiple gunshots.

One of the bullets went flying into the Raleigh fire station on South Saunders Street, just inches above Will Smith, a firefighter who was asleep in the station at the time.

    @goncampn2, was the Arizona shooting a product of Social Welfare System? Was Timothy McVeigh the Oklahama shooting a product of Social Welfare System? So you say what? When it was a black on black crime it's ok, but when it turned into a white gentlemen then the tables turn and now it's a high profile case. WOW!! These are the same charges just re-worded, the Ral.PD, the DA are all working together to charge somebody.

    I'm not going to display the true evidence, don't want to damage her case. I trust that with a good paid attorney these charges will be dropped. So go ahead and continue to allow the media to have you to always think the worst of our young people. She is not a bad women, just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Yes we are sadden and thankful to God that no one was killed in this incident and that the ones that really did the shooting will be caught and charged. Not she was out on bond and doing quit well with her 2yr. old daughter and have the support of her family.

    Where are some of your heads?! The woman was shooting at someone! There is nothing "trumped up" about it. She just better be glad the bullet did not head toward my firefighter son. She is a danger to the public!.......gammasandi

    What was she shooting. The bullet went threw a window, door and 2 walls before it stoped in the third wall. Being a fireman that has had a bedroom with the bed under the window I m with this fireman it would be a few nights before i could sleep again at the station.

    The charges seem trumped up, but that's with so many charges people get. They give so many, so that something sticks. I hope the argument was worth years together. I bet they won't be housed together in the pokey. More Raleigh crime, well this is old, just reiterated with piled on charges.

    People should just "think" before they act!

    "Armed to the terror of the public" means she was carrying or displaying the weapon in a manner as to cause someone to feel terrorized.

    I never understood the legitimate need for the "Armed to the Terror of the Public" law. NC is an open carry state, so you can legally carry a weapon in the open anywhere it's legal to carry a weapon. Other laws cover misuse of the weapon or carrying it where it's not allowed. Seems like a vague catch-all just so they can add another charge to the books.
