SADDLEBROOKE, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - Pinal County sheriff's deputies faced gunfire after responding to a harassment call late Friday afternoon, PCSO said.

Bruce Fay, 53, called the sheriff's office complaining that his neighbor, Pamela Williams, 64, was harassing and threatening to kill him, according to Director of Communications for PCSO, Tim Gaffney.

Once PCSO got to the scene, a deputy began walking up Williams' driveway yelling, "Sheriff's office," Gaffney said.

The deputy heard a woman's voice respond, and after he yelled his position again, the deputy said two shots were fired in his direction.

A second deputy was speaking with Fay when he heard the shots and ran to his car, according to Gaffney.

Both deputies grabbed their guns and began towards Williams' home when Gaffney said, Williams ran down her driveway and was handcuffed.

PCSO searched her home and found a pistol grip, pump action shotgun and marijuana inside of a bedroom, according to Gaffney.

Deputies said the .22 caliber pistol Williams allegedly used was found on top of a shed in front of her home. 

PCSO believes the pistol misfired and jammed after Williams attempted to shoot a third bullet.

While speaking with Williams' neighbor Fay about his original complaint, deputies discovered the Oracle Justice Court had an outstanding assault/domestic violence warrant out for his arrest.

Fay allegedly tried to run away from PCSO, but was eventually arrested.

Williams is being held without bond on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault involving a police officer.

Her neighbor Fay will face charges resulting from resisting arrest and possessing marijuana.
