A woman is accused of illegally firing a handgun inside a French Quarter gas station on July 1, according to the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD).

According to WGNO, an unidentified woman got into argument with an employee at the Chevron gas station located in the 400 block of N. Rampart St.

The incident occurred at approximately 1:19 p.m., according to the NOPD, when the woman returned with a gun and an unidentified shirtless male with distinctive lettering tattoos on his shoulder blades. Surveillance photographs released by the NOPD on July 14 show the woman pointing a handgun while entering the store.

The woman fired several shots into the air, according to the NOPD, but no one was injured. Both suspects immediately fled the store in a black Nissan Altima with an unknown temporary tag in the rear window, according to the NOPD.
