Boise Police were called by the resident of a home in the area of North Curtis Road and West Northview Streets shortly before 10:00 last night. The man reported a woman, who also lives in the home had pointed a gun at him and verbally threatened to shoot him. The man told officers he was able to wrestle the gun away from the suspect. During the struggle, the gun went off. No one was hurt. When officers arrived, the victim was standing in front of the house and told officers the suspect was still inside. As officers were setting up a perimeter, the suspect appeared at the door without the gun. She followed officers commands and was taken into custody peacefully. She was booked into the Ada County Jail on the above charge.
