Linda Inez Goldring, 56, of Chaptico was released this week on $20,000 bond after her arrest on charging papers alleging she fired a shotgun into the air Sunday as her daughter ran out of the suspect's home toward a wooded area during an argument.
Goldring was charged with reckless endangerment and an attempted first-degree assault on Tanya Anita Hall during the incident at the residence on Roosevelt Boulevard.
“I could have killed her if I wanted to,” Goldring told police, and she told them that she got the shotgun from her bedroom in order to scare her daughter, according to a statement of probable cause filed by St. Mary's sheriff's deputy Anthony Cole.
Charging papers allege that Charles Henry Hall III, a son of the suspect, told police that he took the gun from his mother and put it behind the house in an attempt to hide it from the responding law officers. The 35-year-old Lexington Park resident was released on personal recognizance after he was charged with obstructing and hindering the police investigation.
