ADDISON COUNTY — On July 5, Vermont State Police cited a Starksboro woman for reckless endangerment and unlawful mischief following a dispute that day off Atkins Road in Lincoln, during which she allegedly discharged a firearm into a vehicle.
Katelyn Russell, 27, is scheduled to answer to the charges on Aug. 1 in Addison County Superior Court, according to police.
VSP said they interviewed witnesses who alleged that Russell had gotten into an argument with her mother at the Atkins Road address and fired a handgun into a 2013 Volvo SUV, causing damage and recklessly endangering people nearby.
