FOLEY, MO (KTVI) – An argument between a Foley woman and her boyfriend led to shots being fired and a bystander being wounded, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said.

According to a sheriff’s office spokesperson, the incident occurred in the evening hours of October 13 at a home in the 600 block of McIntosh Hill Road. Deputies found a 41-year-old woman who said she was visiting a couple when they got into an argument and the girlfriend, identified as Toni Morris, pulled out a gun and shot at her boyfriend. The 41-year-old woman was struck in the left bicep but the boyfriend was not injured in the shooting.

Deputies learned three children—ages 1, 2, and 5—were asleep in the home at the time of the shooting.

Morris allegedly told deputies she drank of a “fifth” of rum with her boyfriend and the victim. She remembers arguing and fighting with her boyfriend but does not recall the shooting.

Morris had been on probation for forgery, the sheriff’s office said.

Morris was charged with first-degree assault, first-degree attempted domestic assault, two counts of armed criminal action, three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and unlawful use of a weapon. She remains jailed on $250,000 cash-only bond.
