Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies recently arrested a woman on New Liberty Church Rd. who attacked a man and threatened him and herself with a firearm and a knife.

The victim said he was listening to music when Shannon Odell, no age or address given, cut his phone charger. The victim admitted to breaking her vape pen in retaliation and then claimed she started hitting him. Odell then allegedly grabbed a gun and a magazine from the kitchen and threatened to shoot him before turning the gun towards herself. A witness on scene grabbed the gun from Odell and then she grabbed a knife and continued the threats, but the witness took the knife away as well.

Odell claimed the man threatened to assault her first, but she admitted to hitting the man and grabbing the gun. She claimed she grabbed the gun to get the man to leave, but denied attempting to harm anyone and said she didn’t remember where the knife came from.

Because of the use of weapons during a dispute, the deputy arrested Odell and charged her with battery.
