Cactus Lane shooting results in arrest

A Springtown woman was arrested Tuesday night following a shooting at the trailer park of FM 3344 in Jacksboro.

A press release from Jacksboro Police Chief Scott Haynes said officers were dispatched at 7:30 p.m. to Cactus Lane on a shots fired call.

They spoke to a resident who told them Shamblee Fisher, 43, of Springtown, went to Cactus Lane to speak to Ricky Hernandez, 57, of Jacksboro, and an argument ensued.

Hernandez was later assaulted by Fisher. During the argument, Fisher pulled out a gun and fired hitting Hernandez’ pickup truck, according to John Hernandez, the victim’s brother.

Fisher then left the scene and Hernandez refused medical treatment.

At 9:32 p.m. Fisher was detained by a Tarrant County Sheriff’s Deputy. A Jacksboro police officer responded to the scene and placed Fisher under arrest.

She is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second degree felony with a punishment range of up to 20 years and a fine of up to $10,000 and also assault causing bodily injury-family violence, a Class A misdemeanor with a punishment range of up to one year in jail and a fine up to $4,000.

Fisher was booked into Jack County Jail and released Thursday afternoon on bonds of $40,000 for the aggravated assault charge and $10,000 for the assault-family violence charge.
