I’m more interested in what happened after

A woman in Houston got a little perturbed and she shot someone with an arrow in her office. Definitely not good, but check out what happened right after (bold and italic for emphasis) – it was freakin’ standoff in there! I don’t know whether to be happy she was stopped or freaked out at the armaments.

HOUSTON – Authorities say a 30-year-old woman entered a Houston office and fired an arrow into a worker’s chest, and that police later shot and wounded her.

Police say Julie Parker entered the Texas Components Corp. office Monday afternoon armed with a bow, arrows and toy gun, and fired an arrow into 55-year-old Armando Silva’s chest.

Houston police spokesman John Cannon says two office workers then drew their own weapons and confronted Parker.

Police say officers shot Parker several times after she turned on them with the bow.

Investigators have not determined a motive.

Parker was hospitalized in critical condition Tuesday. She is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Silva was in hospitalized in good condition.

    Welcome to Texas – The Land of the Free and the Home of the Well Armed.

    Think Firefly, but without the cool spaceship.

    I’m picturing it, but somehow it’s less shiny when it’s in an office tower :)
