A Somerset woman was arrested after she became enraged at her brother and shot the chair he was sitting in Saturday morning.

Pamela Holder, 55, and her brother, Charles Holder, got into "a minor altercation over a telephone" at a home on the 200 block of Von Street, according to a news release from the Pulaski County sheriff's office.

Then Pamela Holder went out to her vehicle, got a gun and fired "in the direction of Charles," hitting the chair he was sitting in, according to the release.

Charles Holder was not injured, but Pamela Holder had minor injuries from the initial altercation, the sheriff's office reported.

Deputies who were called to the home at 11:22 a.m. charged Pamela Holder with criminal attempt to commit murder and took her to the Pulaski County Detention Center.
