A Tulsa woman is being held in lieu of a $150,000 bond after police say she reportedly shot up an ex-roommate's apartment. Two children were home at the time of the drive-by shooting, according to an arrest report.

Lashondia Jean Richardson was booked Sunday night on a count of shooting with intent to kill, after a former felony conviction.

The arresting officer says police were called to the 1400 block of East 62nd Street after shots were fired into an apartment at about 7 p.m. The victims told police that they kicked Richardson out of the apartment over the weekend, and she threatened to come back and shoot up the place.

They told officers they knew Richardson, 32, had a gun in her purse and believed she fired shots into their glass kitchen doors. Children, ages 6 and younger, were inside the kitchen at the time. They were apparently not injured.

Police tracked down a Chevrolet Silverado at the Joy Mart at 6336 South Peoria and saw Richardson get out of the passenger side and enter the store.

They took her into custody and said she "was not interrogated due to her belligerent attitude," the arrest report states.

Oklahoma Department of Corrections records show she received a suspended sentence on an assault with a dangerous weapon conviction in September, 2013.
