COPPERAS COVE — A woman suspected of being involved in a July 5 Copperas Cove shooting turned herself in to the Coryell County Sheriff’s Department on Monday.

Misty Nichole Lane, 38, was arrested at 6:45 a.m. on three charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon stemming from warrants issued to Copperas Cove Police Department, according to the Coryell County Jail log. The log did not state Lane’s bail amounts.

According to an arrest affidavit, Lane drove Andrew Norris to the 200 block of Erby Avenue. Norris got out of the vehicle with a pump action shotgun and allegedly shot three people.

The shooting injured three people, causing one person to lose his thumb. The incident took place just after midnight after a rap battle in the area.

Norris was arrested July 9 by Cove police on the same charges. Justice of the Peace John Guinn arraigned Norris on the charges and set his bail at $450,000 for the charges. He remained in Coryell County jail as of Monday.

In an unrelated incident, Justice of the Peace Bill Price arraigned Shannon Denose Smith on Saturday on a charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. Price set her bond at $8,000.

Smith allegedly borrowed a vehicle from the victim and refused to return it, according to an arrest complaint. Smith reportedly hid the vehicle from its owner.
