Jones is one of three women deputies talked to when they arrived at the scene of the shooting in the 1900 block of Palisades Drive around 1 a.m., according to the incident report.

Deputies and a K9 officer searched a wooded area but didn’t find a suspect or weapon, deputies indicate in the report.

Jones was detained at the scene and later transported by detectives to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, where she was later arrested, according to the report and jail records.
