LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 22-year-old Lincoln woman has been charged with attempted assault and weapons use, accused of shooting at her friend’s husband with an AK-47 rifle.

Police tell the Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1M9rETU ) that Elyssia Ochoa drove to her friend’s apartment early July 10 after her friend reported she and her husband had been arguing. Police say Ochoa found the husband outside smoking, and witnesses say she confronted him with the rifle in her hands.

Witnesses say the two argued, and that Ochoa fired a single shot at the man, missing him, but blowing a large chunk of cement out of a sidewalk.

Police say Ochoa was arrested Wednesday and charged by prosecutors Thursday. Her bond was set at $15,000 cash.

A phone listing for Elyssia Ochoa rang unanswered Friday.
