A woman was arrested last Friday after firing a gun at Julia Davis Park, Boise police said.

Erika Goodman, 60, was booked on a count of felony aggravated assault. Boise police responded to call at 10:39 p.m. on Jan. 5 of a shot fired. Police said evidence showed that Goodman pointed a flashlight at a victim inside a parked vehicle, took out a gun and fired in the vicinity of the vehicle. Two handguns were discovered at the scene. Goodman was booked into the Ada County Jail on Jan. 6.

Boise police later found two additional reports filed in December that involved similar circumstances, including similar vehicle descriptions. In those reports, the victims had a flashlight shined at them and were shown what appeared to be firearms.

Police are looking for additional potential victims who may have experienced similar situations. Anyone with information is asked to call Ada County Dispatch at 208-377-6790.
