According to News 13, police officers were called to the scene near the intersection of Highway 9 and Pineneedle Drive where onlookers pointed them towards a field.

An officer then walked around a canal and heard a gunshot. He identified the suspect and ordered her to drop her weapon. She apparently cleared the weapon, dropped it, and surrendered herself.

Weathers is being held without bond at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
