According to an affidavit of probable cause, 38-year-old Shawna H. Lacoste called the Adams County 911 Center that same night and said she shot her boyfriend.

Lacoste was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Tony J. Little and committed to the Adams County Adult Correctional Complex without bail.

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for May 3.
