According to Georgetown Police Department spokesman Det. Joey Melvin, Sheena E. Hopkins, 31, and Tramar D. Hopkins, 30, were arrested stemming from the incident that occurred April 1 at Acorn Acres located on Charles Way.

Dispatched for a domestic complaint in which a firearm was discharged, Georgetown detectives learned a verbal argument between a male and female family member inside the residence escalated when the male was struck in his face by the female.

As the man attempted to force the female to sit on a couch, the woman grabbed a glass cup and struck the male on his head. He sustained a head laceration, Det. Melvin said.

The woman then exited the residence. The man got a handgun, exited the residence and as the woman was walking away, he discharged the firearm into the air, Det. Melvin said.

Prior to leaving the scene in a vehicle, the man was witnessed discarding the firearm outside of the residence. Detectives recovered a firearm on scene that is believed to be the one used during this incident, Det. Melvin said.

Sheena Hopkins was charged with Assault 2nd degree, Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony and Offensive Touching. She was arraigned and released on $15,000 unsecured bond.

Tramar D. Hopkins was arrested for Reckless Endangering 1st degree and Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony. He was arraigned and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $15,000 secured bond, Det. Melvin said.
