BEND, Ore. (AP) - A Warm Springs woman has been charged in federal court with shooting her aunt and uncle multiple times at a home on U.S. Highway 26.

The Bend Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/1RWhQff ) that 24-year-old Rhyan Smith was charged with six counts of assault on Thursday in the shooting of Bernadette Smith and Zach Chambers.

Both victims were taken to St. Charles Bend.

Rhyan Smith went to the house where her father, aunt and uncle live on Wednesday.

Court records say she knocked on the door to the bedroom Chambers shares with his wife. After talking, Chambers started to shut the door but Smith started shooting.

He was shot five times and suffered a broken leg. Bernadette Smith came out of the bathroom and tried to stop the shooting, but was shot in the arm.
