Ada Miniard, 35, Richmond, was charged with attempted murder (domestic violence) after she was arrested by the Madison County Sheriff's Department on Sunday.

According to a citation, a deputy was dispatched in reference to a shots fired call. When the officer arrived they met with the victim who said Miniard had tried to shoot him with a 9mm handgun.

He said he was out on his farm and doing some work on the footers for his cabin that was gong to be delivered this week. The victim told the deputy he received a text from Miniard stating she was throwing his stuff out of the building on his property.

The citation states, the victim said he told Miniard he had made most of the payments on the building and if any of his stuff was damaged or missing she would have to pay for them. Miniard allegedly told him she would not pay for it. The victim told the deputy he told Miniard he would get his stuff later and put it in storage. She then allegedly asked the victim if he wanted to buy his own air compressor, to which he said no.

He told Miniard he would give her $200 for her generator but received no reply.

According to the citation, the victim told the deputy he heard Miniard come to the back side of his property in her car, and get out with a stick saying she wanted the keys to the building. He explained to Miniard the keys were at home on his desk. She allegedly said he was a liar and that he would give the keys to her.

Miniard then allegedly went to her car and got a gun and pointed at him and said for him to get in his truck and take her to go get them. The victim said he told her to get in her car and she could drive and he would drive his truck but she said no because she thought he would call the law.

The victim told Miniard he would not go with her. At that point she allegedly raised the gun and fired a shot at the victim as he was falling backwards over a concrete block.

The victim told the deputy he got up then and told Miniard he would go, but he had to go to his tractor to get his keys.

The victim said his dog then jumped on Miniard and she turned, and the victim ran into the woods. The victim allegedly said he knew Miniard was chasing him but couldn't remember if she fired any more shots at him, though he thought she did.

The sheriff spoke with Miniard at the Sheriff's office about the incident several times and she denied that it took place every time.
