According to Chief Alan Watson, Verna Renae Simmons Beavers, 46, of 303 Westwood Circle, Talladega, had her initial court appearance Thursday before Circuit Judge Bo Hollingsworth, who set bond at $10,000.
The victim and a female passenger allegedly drove past Beavers’ residence Wednesday afternoon. Just after 2 p.m., Beavers, who is unemployed, got into a 2007 Hummer and caught up with the victims near the intersection of East Sloan Avenue and 19th Street. According to the incident and offense report, it was at this time she fired into the 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo carrying the victims with a .25 caliber Phoenix Arms handgun.
Watson added after firing the shots, Beavers allegedly attempted to ram the other vehicle.
The gun Beavers allegedly fired was reported stolen in a home burglary in Talladega, but no one has been charged for stealing the gun as of Thursday.
Shooting into an occupied vehicle is a Class C felony in Alabama.
