(KAIR)--A 21-year-old Atchison woman, accused of her involvement in an Atchison shooting last year that left a teenage girl injured, now faces related charges.

According to a release from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, Dreyona Seymore was arrested Wednesday afternoon, in the 1100 block of North 7th Street. She was taken into custody on an Atchison County District Court warrant charging here with aggravated battery and criminal discharge of a firearm.

Following her midweek arrest, Seymore was booked into the Atchison County Jail.

It was 4:00 on the afternoon of August 26, 2023, Wilson says, that officers were called to the report of a shooting that had occurred in the 400 block of U Street.

A 15-year-old girl was found by police suffering from an injury sustained after the teen was shot while she was sitting inside a parked vehicle. Transported for out of Atchison hospital care, the teen was released, following treatment, the next day.

Wilson, in the release, explains that the investigation that followed "determined that the victim was sitting in a parked vehicle when a second vehicle pulled up next to the parked vehicle and a person in the moving vehicle fired a shot into the parked vehicle, striking the 15 year old victim.
